Letter: So-called journalists waste time focusing on trivial issues

It appears that journalistic integrity is dead. The mainstream media demonstrates daily the moral equivalence of doctors violating the Hippocratic Oath, lawyers failing to represent their clients and soldiers abandoning their posts. Why have reporters stopped seeking the truth? Are they so philosophically aligned with one party and that party’s politicians that they cannot even work up the gumption to ask real questions and demand real answers? Perhaps they are scared of what they will find or afraid to hinder all the “progress” being made. Can we go “forward” in earnest if we do not truly know who it is we are following? I think not. 

Despite Wednesday’s presidential press conference, this country and the world still have no clarity about the 9/11 Benghazi attack or the “Fast and Furious” debacle. Both resulted in senseless U.S. deaths. Contrast coverage on those to the media frenzy over military generals having affairs or the relentless journalists’ investigations of the previous administration. It appears the media has become completely irrelevant, joining academia as a cesspool for liberal ideology.
