Pressto Change-o

My latest at the Center for a Stateless Society:

I'm shocked -- shocked -- to learn that the White House plants questions at press conferences, that the Washington Post flirts with openly selling "access" to lobbyists, and that the ABC television network shills for President Barack Obama's health care scheme.

Now that I've got the fake shock out of the way, let's get to the real shock: I'm shocked that anyone finds any of this (other than perhaps the fact that the most visible recent planted question was planted with an Internet-based publication, the Huffington Post) shocking.

There are reasons the "mainstream media" are called the "mainstream media," and those reasons shouldn’t be difficult to figure out.
