The real shocker, IMO, is that most people don't want to know what's really going on. They actively resist getting roused from their peaceful slumber.
I would say the opposite is true. Chomsky touches on this subject here (and on other articles on this website) and can explain it a lot better than I can.
The article does make an okay case for journalism being interesting, but it fails to convince me that "old news" is something that can or should be saved.
and now they are begging us to save them from their death...
Life is funny.
