The Real Problem
The real problem isn't fake news. The real problem is absent news. Steve Bannon, the second most powerful man in the United States, and arguably, one of the four or five most powerful people on the planet, is an overt racist who yearns for an apocalyptic war of civilizations. As of yet, I haven't seen a single report on any of the major networks exposing the insanity of having such a man with so much influence on the government of the United States. I'm old enough to have clear memories of Howard K. Smith, Huntley and Brinkley, and Walter Cronkite. Those guys, true journalists, would have been all over Bannon.
And least we forget, Edward R. Murrow's take down of Joseph McCarthy. It can be done.
