Newspapers also have editors, who with the publisher, make the decisions about what stories will be published and which will be buried, where they appear in the paper and if they need to be shorter or longer. Errors are pointed out and headlines are created. Sometimes the entire article is rewritten to conform to the political stand of the editor. They also have a lot of power.
When I think of the media I am beginning to believe there is a little man, or could be a woman, who sits in a room somewhere and helps the robots of the media rewrite their hit pieces to be more effective against Trump. There is a certain consistency of language and style. There is a similarity of phrases and a common ignoring of important facts. I would call it a conspiracy except for a Bible verse from the Old Testament,
(Isaiah 8:12 NAS77) "You are not to say, 'It is a conspiracy!' In regard to all that this people call a conspiracy, And you are not to fear what they fear or be in dread of it.Okay. I can’t call it a conspiracy. It is just like minds, or lack of them, and like morals, or lack of them, and a desire to destroy the country. It is almost like some diabolical force is forcing them into the same mold of America hating. I guess it doesn’t take much imagination or organization to recycle all the nonsense they threw at George Bush and filed away for eight years under Barak Obama.
You have heard of “talking points”. They are recommended questions and responses published by the political parties and special interest groups for their sycophants. I understand that both parties are accused of putting them out but liberals have a harder time thinking for themselves so you see more uniformity in their opinions.
Maybe we should do away with editors and find out how well the media can write on their own.
