The death of the media

Two stories last week emblematize the death of the mainstream media.

First, at the beginning of October, it was announced that Sarah Palin's book would be printed in mid-November. The next day, it was ranked number one in sales on both and Barnes & Noble's Web site.

The Associated Press assigned 11 reporters to "fact-check" its 432 pages. Anyone care to hazard a guess how many reporters were assigned to fact-check President Barack Obama's books? Or Bill Clinton's book? Or Hillary Clinton's book? Or Al Gore's book, which is so rife with fabrications and errors the British stopped using it in their schools?

The correct answer is zero. Faced with 4,000-plus pages of health care bills, they assigned two reporters.

The second story was the revelation that a whistleblower collaborated with a hacker to reveal 68 megabytes of e-mail between professors at E. Anglican College, a main provider of global warming data to the U.N.

These e-mails prove beyond a doubt that major scientists have been faking the data that purports to prove global warming is occurring.

Furthermore, they were caught red-handed in a conspiracy to destroy that data rather than comply with lawful Freedom of Information Act requests.

The question is not, what data were faked? The question is, rather, what data were not faked?

These e-mails also implicate major universities and scientific institutions in the U. S. Other than Fox News, not one major media outlet has carried the story of what may be history's greatest scientific fraud.

It is obvious the mainstream media has morphed from reporters of news in the service of America, to managers of news in the service of an ideology.

Their demise is less a death than a suicide.
