We look at history and we think we understand what happened, but do we really understand the present and what it means.
You look at the circumstances of Watergate, then look at how the IRS was used as a tool to suppress an election.
Those two events are comparable.
In many ways, the IRS scandal is worse than watergate ever was.
The past should tell us what the media are ignoring about the present.
We look into the past and we think we know what it reveals about who we were back then but does it really tell us the truth.
Back then the media were different, they went after a news story and they reported on the news, but now that has changed.
Journalism is all but dead in the United States.
The media ignore the news when it’s convenient to do so.
