in response to reader comment: The dying MSM and its all about lost revenue

Submitted by Michael S (United States), Sep 21, 2018 at 06:09

Hi, Dhimminomore.

We got rid of our TV over 2 years ago, because the elecrtion coverage was getting too rancid to watch -- and that was months before President Trump surprised almost everyone by getting elceted! My wife likes to read the local newspaper, mostly for the obituaries and a couple of favorite columns; but even she is getting so fed up with the editorial policy, she may drop her subscription. As for internet sites, I generally only end up on MSM sites when Google directs me thereon a search for late-breaking stories. Usually, I don't realize the site is MSM, until around the second paragraph, when I start feeling sick.

My favorites are DEBKA, Beitbart and Fox. When I want a breather from the circus, I watch the latest Hannity videos.

Until I read this article by Dr. Pipes, I was unaware of the German press. Now I know. I grew up among German- and Polish-Americans; and since I'm not Jewish, I've never harbored a grudge against them. After reading this article, I feel sorry for them -- the press there seems to be getting deranged, just as it is in the US>
