What it takes

From the Miami New Times article on Matt Drudge: “And it took just two fingers, a modem, and guts.” He then adds with a snarl: “And not giving a shit!” That sentiment is precisely what alarmed many in the media.

Matt is right. While there certainly are efforts on the part of editors and producers to keep voices of the right and other dangerous notions out of the public eye, it is primarily self-censorship on the part of journalists of all stripes that keeps people from learning about the truth of the world around them.

Lack of fear among the serfs always alarms the masters.
