I think this article says a lot about the state of the free press in this 'age of information'. Truth be told, there's little truth being told at any of the upper echelons of any hierarchy, and I may not be here tomorrow to speak about it. I'll figure that out if it happens and have downloaded the requisite files in case it does happen (funny how Google reader, and Google blogger are going to vanquish 2 large information services in 2 days... And, no, not 'ha ha' funny). But while I figure that out (I could be blowing this blogger thing out of proportion, because it's a service I use) people like this will have some level of carte-blanche to continue whatever it is they get up to when they think nobody is watching, which, I might add, is never again.
It's all to be expected when you have people seeking and somehow finding the forbidden knowledge. It all goes to towing the party line that the internet is the enemy of humanity, which anyone with half a brain could see through as transparently as their own cornea were they not wrapped up too tightly in the blanket of false security while trying to stoke the fire played on channel 3 after they cease their broadcast day (after some song about bombs bursting and the red of a rockets glare).

All of this misinformation, in it's ironically backwards logic, is leading to the absolute breakdown of morals and values, which, of course, is all part of the design. The aim is to make us the bigger criminals, so we have no leg to stand on when trying to start movements like these. We have to be the bigger criminals if people like this are going to continue to earn all the praise they don't deserve, while stealing up everything that isn't nailed down and belittling us all as they do it.
Have things really gone this far? Well, even if they haven't, yet, do you not think this could all be an effective means of testing the waters? "We've secretly replaced Bob's usual instant coffee with powdered cat shit to see if he goes postal", then when Bob doesn't kill everyone in the room, we're all drinking our morning cup of steaming dung juice. It's really that simple. Of course there appear to be some unintentional consequences which could pose significant problems going forward. I doubt even they saw this one coming, but, you'll never catch any admission of irresponsibility or guilt for it.
It's almost laughable to hear such remarkable irony coming from the mouths of some people... Wha? I'm thinking he was given the wrong cue cards... But, it would not be the first time this has happened, because I think somebody might have switched the award presenter's envelope...
