RFK Fiery About Press
The Salt Lake Tribune reports on Robert F Kennedy, Jr‘s most recent speech, saying it was a ‘fiery’ one.
Kennedy faulted “a negligent and indolent press” for not reporting environmental destruction. Tracing the decline of a robust press to Ronald Reagan’s 1988 dismantling of the Fairness Doctrine, which mandated public-affairs programming on TV and required balanced opinions on the airwaves, Kennedy said the national news media have been cowed by their advertisers and their sources.
Wait for it…Wait for it…
In place of hard news, Kennedy said, we get “sex and celebrity gossip. . . . We know more about Tom Cruise than we do about global warming.”
