Every day there is more solid proof that journalism is mostly dead and forgotten my most. If you can't see this reality, I don't think you ever will because you just don't want to. I wish the original mission of journalism was taught in our schools, there would be at least a chance for it to return and give the future generations a chance to think for themselves.

"The New York Times today denounced the New York Times for publishing a rare column by a conservative.
The newspaper ran a column on Wednesday by Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas who argued that we should stop the rioting and looting in the country.
Today, reporter Marc Tracy of the New York Times responded with a story, "Senator’s ‘Send In the Troops’ Op-Ed in The Times Draws Online Ire."
The subheadline said, "Staff members at the newspaper, including a Pulitzer winner, denounced an opinion essay by Tom Cotton, Republican of Arkansas, calling for a military response to protests."
The story was a cry for censoring the New York Times by the New York Times."...

AND MY ANSWER FROM THE TEST....(TOPIC)....COTTON was mimicking his muse......
TRUMP testing the waters...a dictator deciding IF he could powergrab the protectors of the Constitution....IF our military leaders were malleable,
and could be MANIPULATED....much to his chagrin, the command was called out and cancelled....THAT WAS A SIGNAL....the king's demands are
being dismissed...watch what happens,as he continues to hunker down BEHIND his wonderful WHITEHOUSE WALL.....
