A Page of Its Own
When I first started watching this, I thought I would post it in tonight's EB to share. As Goodman's speech progressed, I realized that it deserved a page of its own.
This can and should serve as a measuring stick when sloughing through today's (today being a relative term) corporate media and even some of independent media's morass. It also shows how much more informed and understanding people can be when they stop to ask questions and learn rather than rushing to judgement and spewing remarks based on incorrect or misleading information or their own emotional reactions.

Anyone seeing the comments to this post would think the essay was about Amy Goodman or Bernie Sanders. It isn't. It was supposed to be about an excellent speech that goes into the motives and practices of main stream media and why we need an independent media.
There were some interesting tidbits along the way, and I learned some things that I either didn't know or had forgotten. Knowledge and reminders are good; ignoring the message because one does not like the messenger is not.
