Why Journalism today sucks

So "retarded" is now a "bad word"?
Read the whole sordid thing.
I have a newfound respect for Glenn Greenwald - he seems to hold leftists with as much disdain as I do....

SNIP:
But this is now the prevailing ethos in corporate journalism. They have insufficient talent or skill, and even less desire, to take on real power centers: the military-industrial complex, the CIA and FBI, the clandestine security state, Wall Street, Silicon Valley monopolies, the corrupted and lying corporate media outlets they serve. So settling on this penny-ante, trivial bullshit — tattling, hall monitoring, speech policing: all in the most anti-intellectual, adolescent and primitive ways — is all they have. It’s all they are. It’s why they have fully earned the contempt and distrust in which the public holds them.

Retarded is now a bad word because it hits home for the MSM and democrats who are retarded.

The MSM new tactic is to destroy anyone's reputation who they don't like or disagree with.

If you watch golf you would see it with Patrick Reed. He took a drop for an embedded ball that was approved by a PGA official then another PGA official stated on camera he did everything correct within the rules but the announcers and especially all of them on the Golf Channel kept accusing him of cheating.

It isn't enough for those on the left and the MSM just to question what someone does it is to destroy them completely.

Pejorative terms of all kinds have been altered to make them more "palatable", but they still describe the same thing.  The terms moron and idiot once had specific meanings in terms of IQ.  The term for African Americans keeps changing.  It's just the evolution of language driven by a desire by some to sound proper and unoffensive.

The term "you're bad" has evolved to mean "you're good".

Moron and idiot still have specific meanings in the terms of IQ meaning low IQ.  Those who change the meanings of words want to make themselves out to be something they aren't or to be accepted into society.

Such as queers and lesbians call themselves gay attempting to take vulgarity and perversion out of what they really are.

I don't think anyone technical uses the terms idiot and moron any more, and even IQ is borderline in use.  It's also being tarnished as a term.

Because there is little, if any real journalism today
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
