Hippies what are they good for

The news is the same old crap presented in the same old way. I do not know why we are surprised when the news reporters take on a bias in their reporting. The idea that the paper was politically neutral is a recent invention. Read your history. The Pulitzers and Hearst families pretty much egged the US into the SpanAm War. Many local papers were bannered the "XXXville Republican" or "Democrat" until after WWII.

As a matter of my historian training I am supposed to read all papers and histories, even primary sources with a jaundiced eye. We all have our petty biases and prejudices. Except for me, you can absolutely trust everything you read here as gospel truth and irrefutable logic.
