How the Political Media's Corruption Destroyed America's Most Crucial Institutions

by John Nolte
(United States)

The natural job of a child is to test the parent. This is how a child learns right from wrong. Good parents teach appropriate boundaries, which in turn results in honest, well-adjusted adults. Parents who fail at this oftentimes create neurotic grown-ups incapable of happiness. In this respect, governments and children are similar.


Along with access to enrichment through favors (pay-to-play), government officials are empowered with the authority to control others. Therefore, whether it is a dog catcher or the American president, with their hands on the levers of power, temptation is limitless. And so, like children, it is only natural for politicians and bureaucrats to test the boundaries of right and wrong. This is where the media is supposed to act as the parent.

When a political media does its job, when journalists hold government ethically accountable, the result is an honest, well-adjusted government. And while I can't speak for every locality, at the federal level, this is just not happening. Tragically, our national media now sees itself as part of the government, and as a consequence, the media's mission to hold institutions accountable has been dropped entirely in favor of relentless agenda-pushing.

Even more insidious is the coordination. Across a vast landscape that includes, but is not limited to ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPRPoliticoWashingtonPostLosAngelesTimesESPNUnivisionNewYorkTimesBostonGlobe, all the same stories are covered in the same way (if you disagree, watch the ABCCNNCBSNBC Sunday shows): central government is not suspect, it is good; Democrats are virtuous, multiculturalism trumps e pluribus unum, and anyone who disagrees is backwards, selfish, and racist.

The elite media has accomplished this through its own professional blacklist. If you are a journalist who does not subscribe to this, you are Out, and even that is not enough. As a capital "J" journalist or pundit (this includes most every so-called conservative employed in the elite media), you must prove yourself by using the approved language ("undocumented immigrant") and the approved approach towards those who do not hold the approved opinions (Christianity=bigotry, border security=racism, refusal to violate your religious conscience=hate).

Moreover, not covered by this fiercely-policed clique are stories that contradict the media's over-arching agenda. And by "covered" I do not mean rote coverage. One of the most dishonest tactics the media engages in is pushing back against critics by pointing to page 11 or a 30-second cable news segment from last Tuesday. This, when we all know that the only thing that matters is what the media focuses on -- The Narrative.

And here is the consequence of all this…
