GoDaddy Post Game: John Thompson
wleaks: In what the rest of the world is calling 'the post factual era of American politics' I would suggest facts mean nothing unless you live outside of the US. In fact I would state simply that the rest of the world know more about the facts of American politics than its citizens do. As with most countries who essentially deal with a media and politic that feed each other, the truth is the enemy of both. Let's just take this on its face value. The media is now saying it is not their job to 'check facts'. Let's just say that again, the media's job is not to check whether our elected representatives are telling the truth. Let's just think about that for a little longer. The 5 corporations that own 99% of the media are now openly saying that it is not their job to report 'FACTS'. Take a deep breath and just focus on the reality of American institutions, religious, financial, justice and media which are all proven to be totally corrupt. The press is not interested in 'fact checking'. Politicians are not interested in facts. Yet we are asked to vote on people who may lie to get the nuclear codes. Is this really the greatest democracy the world has ever known? No it is the most dangerous democracy the world has ever known. Scary.
