Remember the good old days when we had a real media?

Granted, they were always a bunch of left-wing kooks, but when push came to shove, they would actually report scandals, even if they involved a Democrat president. Remember these golden oldies?

But maybe there aren't any good, modern scandals to choose from. No 200 dead Mexicans and a couple of dead U.S. law enforcement officials thanks to a bungled Eric Holder operation to promote gun control.

No ongoing Constitutional crisis because of a would-be tyrant declaring that the Senate is in recess, when it clearly is not, to ram through appointees without confirmation.

No public outcry because a president signed into law a bill that allows him to detain American citizens indefinitely, without trial or charges.

No ongoing litany of egregious offenses against the Constitution, any single one of which would have had media screeching for the impeachment of, say, a George W. Bush.

Which, come to think of it, perhaps explains legacy media's ongoing meltdown.

Wait. Just. A. Minute. I don't know how in the name of Inigo Montoya that last cover got in there. Someone from Moonbattery must have hacked into the site.

I would like to comment on the shooting of a Maricopa Deputy Sheriff Sunday morning 4am, north of Phoenix, AZ. The no comment policy of the AZ Central newspaper prevents readers from expressing thier views and suspicions on this tragic event. The 50 year old father of 2, died when his body armor was penetrated by an AK 47 bullet. Eric Holder and the DOJ are holding their breath that this weapon is not connected to Gunwalker's Fast and Furious. Real OLD MEDIA is dying, but real scandals are ongoing. That is my tie-in to your article. Censure me if you must.
