News Outlets That Take a Stand

Email Print

Murray Rothbard loved 19th century newspapers, which openly took a stand. If a paper were Federalist or Jeffersonian, the reader could more easily judge the content. The Progressive era development of pretend disinterestedness in newspapers was a step backwards. That is why I like MSNBC or FOX far more than CNN. It is also the same with websites like LRC, of course, and yet another reason why the funeral of mainstream newspaperdom is a good thing. And we don’t even need a cheap casket. We can burn it openly in the dump, to the wails of the environmentalists too.
