Madeleine "the price was worth it" Albright is quoted on one of the things she misses in an intriguing Washington Post piece covering items that are now becoming a thing of the past:
'Network nightly news broadcasts as a source of common information and national unity. Opinions differed, but Americans began thinking with the same images and facts in mind, brought to them by experienced journalists. If you cared about national or world affairs, you scheduled dinner before or after the nightly serving of Cronkite, Rather, Brokaw or Jennings.'
That collectivistic ideology of hers makes one shiver. This is the Washington elites' paradigm: "We must control you; therefore, you may not get your news from anywhere else but us. We own your mind. Accept it or else."
If anything, that speaks volumes of their agenda and their mindset that they want to impose upon us and the rest of the world. Down with traditional news media! Go alternative news media!
