There was a rather low-key confession made in the New York Times last week that deserves to be blared throughout this country so that every American understands what they are reading in the establishment‚Äôs ultra-controlled, government-managed ‚Äúpress‚ÄĚ ‚Äď and I use that last word loosely indeed.

Joseph Farah, master of irony. The one man most unable to make a news report NOT sound like a PR press release for himself!
"What it means is this: When Americans read these reports ‚Äď whether in newspapers, wire services or on the Internet ‚Äď they are not really reading news stories at all.
