RE: More right wing media figures on government payroll
See, you go along with the corruption of the election process, and now you are going to go along with the corruption of the free press. The whole purpose of the Daily Briefing is to supply a free people with information on the workings of its government thru the free press. And you are saying, fuck that, lets put political hacks in the room and only answer their questions. That's ok with me, I want to be a bleeding sheep.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
