EMERGING FROM FINANCIAL BANKRUPTCY DOES NOT EQUATE TO NO LONGER BEING MORALLY BANKRUPT

The press was suppose to be the great check on government. Corporatists have taken control of the press and now rather than being a check on immoral and corrupt government it has become the big brother of immorality itself.

In today’s world of journalism there would be no “Pentagon Papers” or “Watergate.” The press is no longer about reporting the news and investigative journalism, but about setting an agenda defined by the corporatists who own any individual newspaper.

Nothing is going to get me to buy the Herald. It is immoral at every level. When you couple its immoral editorial policies with the fact a middle school editor could do a better job than its current editor, it is fair to say the Herald is a drag on the community. It is time to bury this corporatist trash in the heap of human tragedy it has become.

In Brownsville and Cameron county you could take the brains of most politicians and put it in a bird and the bird would fly backwards. Rather than address the poor sense of ethics by our politicians and lack of meaningful education, the Herald instead chooses a soap opera approach. This is sad. This is Brownsville.

The bird comment is not original - it is a modification of an Archie Bunkerism
