NY Times Admits: Mainstream News is Basically Censored Propaganda

Gotta love the description of mainstream media journalists - the governments stenographers!

Important article from the NY Times demonstrating how real journalism covering the criminal political elite in America is basically dead. Even better, is Glenn Greenwald’s article at Salon slamming the complete joke that is the mainstream media and he shows us all exactly why alternative media is taking over. I mean, after all, only an incredible 21% of Americans have confidence in television news, a new low according to a recent Gallup poll.

Key quotes from the Greenwald article discussing the NY Times piece (both are worth reading):

A common criticism of establishment journalists entails comparing them to stenographers, on the ground that most of them do little more than mindlessly write down and uncritically repeat what government officials say. But stenography is a noble and important profession: they’re the court-licensed officers who, with astonishing speed and accuracy, transcribe the statements of all witnesses, lawyers and judges in judicial proceedings. If establishment journalists were to replicate actual stenography, it would be an improvement on most of the work they produce.
