Sins of the Scribblers

Dennis Perrin gives us some good insights into the recent special on PBS with Bill Moyers and the teary eyed journalists who have confessed their sins, after which of course, they will continue in the same vein as they always have. After all there is another upcoming war to promote.

“The work Moyers is doing is important and sorely needed. But showing the perpetrators for the murderous liars they are, several years after they've committed the crime, isn't nearly enough, for you know it will happen again. And again. And again. Then every few years a media vet like Moyers can produce a special where those who were in on the deed scratch their heads and wonder how they were supposedly fooled or led astray. In a sense, Moyers helps these fuckers to justify their actions, regardless of their "self critical" posing.”

How true.

If you have not been to Dennis Perrin’s site then you are really missing out on some fantastic writing. Dennis has been very instrumental in opening my eyes to the realities of politics for which I am very grateful.

Go read Dennis now.
