Time’s editors showed in July 1994 that they believed their job was not to uncover the truth but to provide political cover to Democrats in Washington. It’s only gotten worse since then, but I believe this incident formally marks the end of the “mainstream media” as we once knew it. Like many other countries in Europe and elsewhere, we now have a politicized media in the United States. But unlike other countries, in all but a few cases our media refuses to acknowledge its ideological affiliation. So added to bias, you have hypocrisy.

Ex-Time reporter: The day I knew journalism had died in America
[It may have been the day Timmerman recognized journalism was a propaganda arm of the Democrats but that kind of crap was happening long before that. I have heard first hand stories from the late 1970s. It probably wasn’t new then. I suspect journalism has always been biased and hypocritical.—Joe]
