Keeping people ignorant, gullible

Keith Marcum (Your Views, Feb. 9) addresses a dangerous condition that many can't or won't recognize. A lion's share of our “news” media has clearly become a powerful, corrupt propaganda network in support of the radical left. Nearly every day, I watch “news” broadcasts on one major network and on Fox News; the glaring omissions and distortions by the major networks are a disgrace to American journalism, with no sense of shame or conscience. There have even been cases, one recently by MSNBC, in which audio was craftily doctored to remove important words spoken by the parent of a Sandy Hook shooting victim.

Our educational system holds much of the blame for this; it's been ignoring American government, civics and history for decades. The people are ignorant and gullible, in accordance with the objectives of evil philosophies.
