If there's to be any hope of making the world a better place we have to see it for what it is. It's not fair and never has been since the beginning of civilization. But worse than the belief that we can change anything by complaining that it's not fair is accepting it the way it is. We've got to fight for change. Get in the face of the dismissive fools who ridicule hope by labeling it "the good fight."
Will Michael Cohen's sentence protect Trump by discouraging other bona fide whistle blowers? Is the National Enquirer rollover a red herring?
"Everybody knows the war is over. Everybody knows the good guys lost...." - Leonard Cohen
The red herring may be a little paranoid. Maybe not! GMA this morning mentioned the rag's willingness to talk almost in the same breath with Cohen's sentence. There was never a word about the repression of honesty that might come of the judge's and prosecutor's decision to harshly punish Cohen after he spoke up. In today's news stories such failures to garnish the facts with speculations about consequences are rare.
ABC, NBC and CBS are more trustworthy than FOX but that's really not saying much. The main stream media in general, like the politicians (with rare exceptions) support the corporate entities [which they are among, of course] who fuck over the real human beings that are 90% of the population.
