NOW THERE’S A THOUGHT

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

“The prob­lem: ‘jour­nal­ists’ no longer re­quire proof for claims that may lead to war (or any­thing re­ally). Nope, they are hu­man Pez dis­pensers for the pow­er­ful. If the CIA, FBI, or ‘high level’ of­fi­cials say so, it’s a mad dash to ‘break’ the story,” writes Jor­dan Chari­ton, a colum­nist for Me­di­aite.com

“Is it pos­si­ble Rus­sian hack­ers with ties to the govern­ment hacked into the Demo­cratic National Com­mit­tee and Clin­ton cam­paign? Sure. It’s also pos­si­ble ston­ers work­ing at Best Buy did. The dif­fer­ence: ac­cus­ing Best Buy ston­ers of hack­ing political arms with­out con­crete, pub­licly dis­persed ev­i­dence won’t launch World War III.”
