Thank you, Media

“Whenever the people are well informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights.”

–Thomas Jefferson to Richard Price, January 8, 1789

True. But when people are badly informed; misinformed; or not informed at all, other than with tripe and propaganda?

Then you have the situation we have today. Mass hysteria, widespread ignorance, and movement toward either all-out totalitarianism or civil war. Or both.

Thank you, media.
