A description of a book that I'll bet few of us have ever read, let alone heard of. For those of us who virulently distrust corporate media, it's good to know that one of the pillars of the muckraking era exposed out all a century ago and despite being on elf the literary lions of the era, had his book constructively buried and erased from history.

The Brass Check

A brass check was the token purchased by a customer in a and given to the woman of his choice. Sinclair implies that, in a similar fashion, the owners of the mass media purchase journalists' services in supporting the owners' political and financial interests.

Excellent book suggestion! 👍👍👍

I didn't know what a Brass Check was, but I now see the connection to bought and paid for legerdemain.

As a student of American History, I feel sorrow over all the great men and women who have pointed to corruption in our society and ways to correct it, only to have those fostering said malice aforethought corruption double down on the corruption.

It is no secret that the CIA has, since its inception (and to this day), with the aid of Henry Luce (🦍 American Century proponent) and other American NAZIs, recruited talented journalists right out of college. These co-opted mouthpieces were (and still ARE) steered to mainstream media (propaganda) outlet well paying jobs with lots of invented out of whole cloth "recommendations", along the way, to cement their names as "reputable journalists" in the minds of the American public. These unethical wordsmith evil bastards get TWO regular paychecks (the CIA paycheck HAS TO BE TAX FREE  because of "national security" concerns that the said journalist would be exposed as a government 🐵 TOOL.) throughout their USA corrupting lives.

And now a word from the New York Times, the Washington Post, etc., you get the idea:

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
