I’m going to post something after President Obama speaks tonight about ISIS. I have no idea what he’s going to say, but so far the media is all gung-ho with anticipation for going back to war.
Not to accuse them of being callous about death and destruction, but it doesn’t surprise me that they are all twitterpated about it; that means breathless reporting and BREAKING NEWS banners on the bottom of the screen; MSNBC is running a countdown clock to the presidential address. They know that war brings viewers, viewers bring ratings, and ratings bring money.
They’re turning William Randolph Hearst’s line on its head: “You furnish the war and we’ll provide the pictures.”
