Another indicator of how shallow and barren the mainstream media has become was provided by Time Magazine.
Considering Sandra Fluke as a candidate for their (not-so-prestigious) Person Of The Year reveals much about the magazine and less about the country. What does a possible nymphomaniac and self-admitted parasite have to do with America or its ideals? Short of pimping for Obama and ObamaCare (and quite likely herself) just what has this person contributed to the country or society?
Perhaps her appearance in front of Congress has social value. It serves to remind us, once again, how shallow and inane our ruling class truly is. What could these fools possibly see in exploiting this woman other than political advantage? Who else could believe that some misguided, sexually active, spoiled brat represents average Americans? Oh, perhaps she does and Obama’s re-election serves as Exhibit I in making such a case.
Time Magazine, itself, would be my nomination for its own award of POTY (oh, why could there not be one more “T” in this acronym?). The nomination of Sandra Fluke reveals their political bias (again). It also reveals the depths of their insight.
If Time would feel uncomfortable awarding itself their own dubious honor, then let me suggest another, perhaps even more deserving, candidate — the US educational system, from kindergarten through post-graduate work. In a very real sense, they have made all this possible. Thanks to them, Time is considered to be an unbiased source of news. For most, it is considered difficult, but in-depth analysis. That in itself is worthy of some kind of award.
If Time Magazine can any longer be taken seriously, you know this country is over.
