In this episode, we sit down with Sharyl Attkisson, five-time Emmy Award-winning investigative journalist and managing editor of Full Measure, to talk about her new book, “Slanted: How the News Media Taught Us to Love Censorship and Hate Journalism.”

“ U T O P I P S Y C H O S I S “ is my term, used to describe the “They” you kept referencing, Sharyl.
Gayle King, Norah O’Donnell and the rest at CBS, and at other LEFT-wing networks, suffer a degree of that mental illness : U T O P I P S Y C H O S I S (( by the way, Gayle King has never had MALE reporters at her desk, as all of her “male” co-hosts have been - are! - psychologically female )).
EXTREME examples of Utopipsychosis have been Bolshevik mass murderers in Russia, Maoist mass murderers in China, and Pol Potist mass murderers in Cambodia.
I’ll find and post here,
my report on socialism
Pol Pot, shortly.
-from a collection of my 3000-plus thoughts on the root cause(s) of the West’s steep moral/cultural decline, “Paleoconservative Thoughts To Ponder”:
2345) Communism is the goal of socialism, which is but a temporary pause in leftists' forced march of humanity towards hell on earth, about which hell this scribbler has been giving warnings to anyone sympathetic to that cause – to that horrific insanity! – of socialism/communism, which ism's bottom-line underpinnings are expertly retold by Long Visalo, a returnee to Pol Pot's communistic Cambodia in 1973, and who gave this horrifying account of an indoctrination seminar for intellectuals at camp K-15, conducted by Khieu Samphan ["Pol Pot: Anatomy of a Nightmare," by Philip Short, pp. 316-317]: "How do we make a communist revolution? The first thing you have to do is to destroy private property. But private property exists on both the material and the mental plane . . . To destroy material private property, the appropriate method was the evacuation of towns . . . But spiritual private property is more dangerous, it comprises everything that you think is 'yours', everything that you think exists in relation to yourself—your parents, your family, your wife. Everything of which you say, 'It's mine,' is spiritual private property. Thinking in terms of 'me' and 'my' is forbidden…The knowledge you have in your head, your ideas, are mental private property, too. To become truly revolutionary, you must . . . wash your mind clean . . . So the first thing you must do to make yourself fit to participate in the communist revolution…is to wash your mind . . . If we can destroy all material and mental private property...people will be equal. The moment you allow private property, one person will have a little more, another a little less, and they are no longer equal. But if you have nothing – zero for him and zero for you – that is true equality…If you permit even the smallest part of private property [[ and private thinking! ]], you are no longer as one, and it isn't communism" . . . [[ p. 325, employing George Orwell’s 1984 ]]: "The whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought . . . In the end we will make thought-crime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that will be needed will be expressed by exactly one word [no hint of what that one word is here], with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten. Every year fewer and fewer and fewer words, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller . . . In fact there will be not thought as we understand it now. Orthodoxy [[ communist orthodoxy ]] means NOT THINKING [[ my emphasis ]] . . . Orthodoxy is unconsciousness"; an INSANITY, dear reader, that's lost on all leftists harboring any hope of goodness and truth being found in socialism/communism, and so extreme in its Utopian pursuit of equality that even to THINK of how beautiful a sunrise is or to smile at the missteps of a toddler at play or to feel even a hint of pleasure from a warming morning sun invites MENTAL INEQUALITY, which necessarily leads to material inequality, according to the leftist Utopians. How dare you to steal a mental pleasure that some comrade, somewhere, cannot equally share with you? There can be no private thoughts! And today's socialism-/communism-/feminism-driven Left within Western democracies is incrementally leading us there, as today's fairness-driven leftists are tomorrow's equality-driven Pol Pots – those Marxian ARCHITECTS and their liberal-Christian and secular-humanist dupes! – who'll eventually come to TORTURE and/or KILL any opponents of their perfect Marxian equality, and which fact about them ought to horrify any reason-driven person anticipating future results of the Marxists' DIVERSITY MOVEMENT and requisite FORCED INTEGRATION, which their open-borders immigration policies now demand worldwide.
Does history rhyme or repeat?
