Is the pattern clear enough yet? Jonathan Alter exemplifies it; Tucker Carlson and Elizabeth Bumiller come right out and say it.

The press, as a class, are cowards. They have money, status and privilege, and are not willing to do anything -- especially their jobs -- if it means rocking the boat or jeopardizing their position.

Of course there are exceptions, Sy Hersh being a prominent one right now. A few journalists still take pride in their craft. But for the most part, 'hack' is too good a word for them. 'Sheeple' is closer to the truth.

These people do not deliver the news, they obstruct it. They do not inform the public discourse, they deform it.

And they have to go.
