When someone would point out an “inconvenient truth” to the left-wing folks I used to hang out with back in the ’60s (I’m a recovering Democrat), they would be told that it could not be discussed because “that’s not politically correct.” Truth has never been a defense to political incorrectness. Only those stories which advance the “proper” narrative may be spoken.
We see the result of that perverse approach in much of what passes for main stream journalism today. If coverage of the trial of a physician accused of mass murder might cause people to stop and think about what happens to babies in an abortion “clinic,” the story must be spiked. If it turns out that a District Attorney wasn’t murdered by right-wing extremists … we’ll be back after these brief messages. If the wacko who shot the congresswoman is a crazed lefty … [crickets]
The printing press broke a stranglehold on information by allowing the mass production and distribution of books, etc., but even into the 20th century, there were still relatively few mass media outlets. The Internet is changing that. Inconvenient facts are becoming harder to hide.
The truth is out there.
