……but I hope you will read this;
When one gets into bed with government, one must expect the diseases it spreads.
—Ron Paul, R-TX, US Congress.
whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
1611, King James Version of the Bible, Epistle to the Galatians, 6:7
Those of us who follow politics have long felt that the media per se are ‘in bed’ with our politicians, tamely repeating that which they are told and not questioning in any depth said content; and then presenting what they are told as ‘news’. Not that the ‘commentariat’ are any better, their views usually based on a lack of knowledge of the problem about which they spout, compounded by a lack of research. In contrast this blogger has devoted his entire output, since the pandemic of Covid-19 began, to that problem – but I digress slightly.
