"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Journalists are weak willed cowards to begin with.  If they weren't, they would have joined the Marines.  The Navy at least!
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Once upon a time journalist were fearless ... during the Nixon, Ford, Reagan, GH and GW administrations.

Clinton and Obama put a stop to that.

Back when some of them actually believed "reporting the truth" was in their job description, not just "advancing the administration's agenda."

Back when they were little Leftists attacking their ideological opponents, until their ideological soulmates were elected and all was good.

This is standard bullshit dished out to the public whenever there's a change in the balance-of-power expected (mid-terms)

They blame their behavior on their fear for their safety and careers.

Of course there is a 'cure'.....it's called Republican majorities.
