The Happy Slave

This is my surrender to the Powers that Be, who wish we all were just happy little slaves, tooling along without a care in the world, doing what our better-educated masters tell us to do, not daring to step out of line. I'm so bad at surrender...

I'm an old-fashioned Get-out-of-my-face-atarian. So long as the gubmint left me alone, I had no problems with it. Gubmint wants to run my life, so I'm doing something about it. (Not just blogging, either.)

Cooper makes an admission.

Well, it looks like Anderson Cooper has slipped up and told the truth: "I've never, not even once, seen a story spiked because the victim was not attractive enough or the wrong race. But I've seen plenty of stories fall by the wayside, pushed down and out of the show, because a consensus develops that says, "You know, I don't think our viewers are very interested in this case." Of course, many of us have known for quite a long time that all the large commercial "news" outlets have no actual reporters nor editors, just different ranks of infopimps. Like good little infopimps, they pander. Too bad they think that being an infopimp is the same as being a journalist.
