One of the great conservative thinkers of our time (or any time for that matter) is Thomas Sowell. He has been dishing out dimes of wisdom for decades, and though he is getting on in years he is still quite capable of breaking down the current status of geopolitics, economics, and cultural differences.
In other words, he’s the left’s greatest nightmare.
On the topic of fake news, which is near and dear to our hearts as a news outlet opposed to the machinations of mainstream media, Sowell breaks it down into a few simple choices. Either people in the media do their jobs or announce that they’ve stopped doing their jobs, in which case it’s up to the people to be discerning.
“If people in the media cannot decide whether they are in the business of reporting news or manufacturing propaganda, it is all the more important that the public understand that difference, and choose their news sources accordingly.”
