    “The real story in the NSA scandal is the collapse of journalism”

    How true that sentence. Our watchdogs have changed sides. They’re not lapdogs, they are unpaid henchmen who actively protect leftist ideologues and their propoganda. They used to protect us from them. Now, journalists are protecting THEM from US. I hope they realize what they are doing before it really is to late.

    Even Disqus seems to have joined THEM judging from my experience commenting at National Journal about Ron Fournier.
