"The Antique Media"

Below is the link to an excellent article called the Antique Media by Thomas Lifson. I think he nails what has occurred to the MSM and what lies in their future.

I wholeheartedly agree with his statement that Watergate led to the MSM taking a sharp left turn. I believe Watergate actually ruined the MSM. After Watergate, the average media employee evolved from having an ordinary lower to middle class background to being an Ivy League rich kid bound and determined to emulate Woodward & Bernstein and take out a president too.

hey cousin. this isn't about this posting -- I'm a proud member of what you call "the antique media" -- but I have a bit of family history to share, if I can get your e-mail: an audio file from the library of congress of pat lynch singing "the phoenix park colliery" and telling some heartbreaking mining stories. sorry to hear about your dad -- he was my mom's cousin. she's up visiting and said he would have loved to have heard this. - m. bulik (bulik@comcast.net)
