Pure rubbish, twaddle


I remember the movie, “All the President’s Men” in which the reporters for the Washington Post brought down the president of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, due to accurate reporting – classic journalism with three sources before the newspaper went to print for every story submitted to the editor.

Whenever I watch Fox News T.V. and their version of “journalism,” I am reminded of the Nazis during the 1930s in Germany.

The Minister of Propaganda, Joseph Goebbels (formerly a chicken farmer), was responsible for the “facts” coming forth to the people of Germany and of the world – pure rubbish, twaddle, “B.S.”, meaning made-up “facts.”

The fact is that propaganda is not factual and Fox journalists should be ashamed of themselves for distributing such sorry journalese.
