    I wonder how embarrassed we’d be by our media if we saw them ranked against that of other nations. CNN, Fox, et al. are sensationalist amateur clubs, network news consists mostly of baby boomer artifacts whining about rap music, big print media (looking at you, AP) is flailing wildly in a death spiral and hasn’t possessed a modicum of integrity since the 90s, regional newspapers push the corporate interests of their ownership, and the various digital outlets are too often the work of narcissists more concerned with getting clicks than being professional (BuzzFeed). They have stood by for years if not decades while lies are peddled day in and day out, and the real atrocities go unreported. They are lazy, insulated and mostly incompetent.

    That leaves us NPR and PBS, and the few names like Brian Williams, Rachel Maddow and Jim Lehrer who aren’t completely cringe-worthy. Let’s be real: the media has insisted on acting like children and are being treated as such.
