the monkey and the zookeeper
The New York Times ran an eye-opening article this Sunday about the way that the government has been spinning the news, deploying their military loyalists as objective "experts" (who all happen to be balding white men) on television news programs.
Now, I don't quite know why this kind of thing ever surprises us. It is strange to me that we ever trust the source when it is anything other than the Source.
But, here we are, monkeys in the cage. And we are getting all of our information from the zookeeper.
One day we will wake up from this (un)reality.
