[Take some time reading and reflecting on the e-commentary six years ago on the concerted attacks on independent journalists at A “Journalist” Declares War On Journalists . . . And Journalism (November 28, 2016) and Dispatches From The War On Journalism: The New “Nixon’s Enemies List” (December 5, 2016).  See the propaganda war waged by even NPR at N. Propaganda R. Transcribed:  “Get Vaccinated.  Attack Russia.”  Oh, And Happy Presidents’ Day! (February 21, 2022) and Washington Wants War In The Worst Way:  Dust Off The IOSAT Or Return To The Status Quo Ante Bellum? (January 24, 2022).]
