I hear your rage and upset. I understand only 6% of Americans still trust you, and we here in the Independent media now command the majority of the American audience.
So, and despite some faux-repentant editorials, you do what you do best; launching a campaign against the Independent media, labeling us all the “fake” news.
I find this amusing since it was you, the Corporate media, that told us Saddam had nuclear weapons, that Assad was using Sarin against his own Alawite supporters in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors literally on the day they arrived (the UN concluded the US-backed rebels did this), that there would be no more snowfalls after 2000, that Hilary was winning by 12 points, that a little radiation is good for you, etc. Your historical record is hardly better; torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, Lusitania not carrying weapons, and so forth. All of these headlines have been discredited by time.
So now you moan the rise of the Independent media. You should actually be very proud. You in the Corporate media created us with your lies to the people. You made us. We are your children, as unloved by you as we may be.
And as is true of all things, sooner or later the children shall outstrip the parents.
