Greasing up to power

Must read article in the Guardian

While the article is mostly about the British media the same analogy can be applied to American reporting:

"When most of our journalists fail us, it's hardly surprising that the few who are brave enough to expose the lies of the powerful become heroes, even if their work is pretty coarse. When a scruffy comedian from Michigan (Michael Moore)can bring us closer to the truth than the BBC, it's time for a serious examination of why news has become the propaganda of the victor".
