What Is Objective Truth?

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY FEBRUARY 22, 2018

         SINCE MULTI BILLIONAIRE JEFF BEZOS BOUGHT THE WASHINGTON POST THE IMPOSSIBLE SEEMS TO HAVE HAPPENED. THE NEWSPAPER – IN ITS NEWS COVERAGE, EDITORIALS AND COLUMNS – HAS BECOME EVEN MORE LIBERAL.

         THAT’S WHY I LAUGHED WHEN I READ A STORY IN EDITOR AND PUBLISHER MAGAZINE THAT THE POST IS LAUNCHING A VIDEO SERIES ON HOW TO BE A JOURNALIST.

         HOW WOULD THEY KNOW? EDITOR AND PUBLISHER WRITES: “IT SEEMS LIKE THESE DAYS THERE’S A WAR ON OBJECTIVE TRUTH.” STOP RIGHT THERE. WHAT DOES THE LIBERAL MEDIA KNOW ABOUT OBJECTIVE TRUTH? OBJECTIVE TRUTH BEGINS WITH GOD, BUT MOST JOURNALISTS EITHER REJECT GOD, OR THINK HIM – IF THEY CALL HIM “HIM” – IRRELEVANT TO WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS LIFE.

         NOWHERE IN THE ARTICLE — AND I CAN SAFELY PREDICT NOWHERE IN THESE POST VIDEOS — WILL ITHEY ADMIT THAT MODERN JOURNALISM HAS A CREDIBILITY PROBLEM AND THAT’S WHY THEIR SUBSCRIPTIONS AND TV RATINGS HAVE DECLINED. THEY THINK THE PUBLIC SHOULD SWALLOW WHAT THEY ARE BEING FED WITH NO QUESTIONS ASKED AND WITHOUT COMPLAINT.

         THOSE DAYS ARE GONE. IF THE POST AND OTHER MEDIA DON’T ASK THEMSELVES WHY SO MANY PEOPLE DISTRUST THEM THEY ARE DOOMED TO FURTHER DECLINE. I’M CAL THOMAS IN WASHINGTON.
