Friends who lived in the former USSR tell us how learned to read between the lines of Pravda, the government newspaper. They certainly didn’t expect to get an honest account of important news from the tightly controlled articles. In the last few days, Drudge has reported Homeland Security considering taking charge of the upcoming election and another site reported a CA postal worker stashing close to 50,000 pieces of mail in her apartment. Why can’t we find info on these stories in the L.A. Times or other establishment papers? Are the stories bogus or is most of the media not even pretending to journalistic standards anymore?
