Find Me One Honest Journalist


I wonder if we Donald Trump should qualify as the 20th or 21st century’s honest man. I suppose we could cheat a little and count him as both. I doubt it actually matters because - as Colonel Nathan Jessup explained -  most people can’t handle the truth.


They hear only their own truth.

And denounce anyone who doesn’t agree with it as a denier, liar or worse.

So even when you find your century’s honest man, many will reject the truth.

I guess we can’t fault them; when you’ve gone so long without hearing any truth, the real thing is hard to recognize, and even harder to accept.

I leave it to you to ponder whether there is, or ever was, an honest journalist in America. For that search you’ll need more than Diogenes’ lantern.
