At least Argentina is blatant about it....

So Argentina has 'nationalized' their newspapers.  Big deal--at least everyone knows and acknowledges what they did.  Our media and newspapers have been the willing tools of the government for years--hiding and just downright not reporting on issues, such as Obama's qualifications (or not) to be president, the John Edwards kerfluffle (had to be broken by the National Enquirer), Solyndra, Fast and Furious, the list goes on....  but they deny their culpability and complicity. 

The MSM in the United States has failed in being a true Fourth Estate by becoming a lap dog to the political class instead of speaking truth to it.   At this point there is no difference in the nationalized Argentine media and the unofficially nationalized US media.

Does anyone who really wants information and insight into the day's events actually read, listen to, or watch them anymore? I haven't touched a newspaper or radio dial (except for NOAA weather) in years. The only TV I watch is the occasional movie.

This one makes me wonder what is going on internally in Argentina that they don't want to get out...
