Lew: Is the state expressing dissatisfaction with its wholly-owned subsidiary, the lockstep media? What more do the corporate-state owners expect their parrots to do? Or is this but a gimmick to create the kind of state purveyor of obvious lies such as they had in the Soviet Union and, in the process, to lend comparative credibility to the present media? Even Boobus may learn what the British have long known: Nothing is to be accepted as true until it has been officially denied!
All-in-all it's enough to make Joseph Goebbels dance in his grave (he does have one, does he not?).
