Just how stupid are we?

Thomas Sowell's column, Tainted media identifies a "gross double standard" in the way the MSM handled news during the last presidential election. As if nobody noticed. Times have changed, and the Alphabet Networks lame newsertainment shows, Big Old Newspapers and Movie Star Pronouncements aren't what they used to be. The information explosion blew up in their faces. It is now possible to know more than what these entities deign fit to spoon feed us. The audience isn't made up of bumpkins, rubes, hayseeds and peasant farmers any more. Big city intellectual sophistication and a dollar will still get you a cup of coffee in Omaha.
