America’s Corrupt Media – How Reporters Took Direct Orders from Hillary Clinton’s Staff - by Michael Krieger

Jeff Fitchett: Michael Krieger does an excellent job exposing disinformation and he has provided a great piece on Hillary Clinton and America's corrupt media.  As I always say; "think for yourself".

"It is the job of the Fourth Estate to act as a check and a restraint on the others, to illumine the dark corners of Ministries, to debunk the bureaucrat, to throw often unwelcome light on the measures and motives of our rulers. ‘News’, as Hearst once remarked, ‘is something which somebody wants suppressed: all the rest is advertising’. That job is an essential one and it is bound to be unpopular; indeed, in a democracy, it may be argued that the more unpopular the newspapers are with the politicians the better they are performing their most vital task."
– Brian R. Roberts from a October 29, 1955 article in the London periodical “Time & Tide”
