Joe, forgive the snip.

On the nitty-gritty of 'money and power' the mainstream media
simply can't afford to tell the whole truth - IMHO.

Example 1 - money. Quite a while ago I'd occasionally chat to an
editor on a UK broadsheet and was talking on the phone during a
pre-election period when he said (paraphrased) - "Hey - how
about you sending me a clear concise 'letter from a reader' on
tax matters - the election is near and I'm not getting anything
usable from the readership."

I said (paraphrased again) - "OK - if you'll print it complete,
with details of the sliding tax-scale which profits the very
rich, and also of the unfair allowances which keep middle-
 management in line". He's a very intelligent chap (Irish I
believe) and immediately replied "You know I won't be able to
print that particular stuff."  Result - I didn't write the
letter, even though I had done similar favors in the past.

So the 'Independent', a so-called crusading UK broadsheet,
couldn't print the full story about taxes (even as a reader's
letter) under a conservative regime and more than a decade
later, still can't print the truth under a socialist regime.

Example 2 - power. Going back a way, this comes via a seventies
book. A 'Sunday Times' team  - Chester, Leitch & Simpson -
 couldn't run it in the paper (I believe) so published it in a
book - "The Cleveland Street Affair". Even today the details are
still not openly discussed. The Press (and Wiki) still talk
about a "male brothel" without admitting it was an elite
pedophile-kidnapping conspiracy. The one editor who printed the
truth, in a north London radical journal, was immediately jailed
for "libel" (c 1889).

BTW - even today rich criminals called 'libel tourists' come to
the UK to have the truth about them suppressed by corrupt
English libel courts.

I'm sorry to say that all talk of an open Press is just a pious
dream - definitely not reality.

The mainstream Press has owners.
