  • "Arbiters of truth" sounds bad enough, but when that "truth" is the US government's approved line, uniformly spouted by the press, it's much worse. From Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com: An angry mainstream U.S. media is shaking its fist at anyone who won’t clamber onboard the Russia-gate groupthink bandwagon.

NYT Says Congress Has 'Duty' to Make War--Rather Than the Right to Reject It, Adam Johnson, FAIR.org

The whole point of granting war-making powers to Congress, it should be noted, was so that Congress could serve as a barrier to war.
