  •  What's changed most is the media (4+ / 0-)

    Back in the early seventies, before industry consolidation, the end of the fairness doctrine, the ascendency of television and digital media over print, etc. reporters saw it as their job to ask hard questions of those in power.

    We don't have many actual journalists any more, just "infotainers" and their function seems to be confined more to disseminating propaganda and selling advertising than serving as an unbiased check on those in power.

    Feel trickled on yet?
