Iraq: Why won’t the media question the government’s lies?

His commentary is right on, but the deeper question is why is the media allowing these crooks to get away with such blatant lying.  The occasional burp of reality on CNN only illustrates the broader pattern of the mainstream media’s cooperation with the deceptions.

In science, when you see a correlation between two variables you look for two possibilities: one variable influences the other or both are influenced by a third.  While the government can certainly influence media by controlling access to newsmakers, that doesn’t explain the wholesale collapse of journalism in recent years.  The implication is that both government and media are controlled by a third entity, obviously that would have to be wall street, the only group that can buy such power.
