Days of yore, when mass media seemed to vaguely comprehend it depended on the rest of society and the military for the freedoms it enjoyed and was seemingly eagerly willing and able to lend a hand with good press, propaganda even . . .

Days of present, when mass media are either rabid pacifists, or malicious conspiracy theorists and are unsatisfied if they are not allowed to completely determine the narrative(s) and, point out every mistake, every deficiency, every moral conundrum. It would almost seem that, in the culture of Western journalism, there is some sort of PRIDE in their role in having made all the deaths in the Vietnam war a vain expenditure and in the oppression and murder of the millions of South Vietnamese that resulted when the U.S. pulled out.

Anthro: Answer question #2: How do "Climate Change models" mathematically control for the natural forces which caused the Ice Age(s) to come and go . . . repeatedly?
