15. Point at the corporate media and laugh.
Brian Williams and his fellow propagandists have an ever shrinking audience. As the Russian people ignored the Soviet Official news, our media is looking the same as TAAS, Izvestia and Pravda. It's all junk news, and now that they've lost a good portion of their audience to Vinny in the robe, the Brians are lashing out. All they really had to do was live by the standards of a true free press that acts as an unofficial, independent government watchdog. Instead they've been lapdogs, fearful of losing access and compromising their integrity. Everything changes once the lying starts. It's not the news they've covered that has the corporate media in a bad light, it's the news they fail to cover. They still ignore the treasonous act of exposing an undercover CIA agent.
Treason by those holding the levers of power should be the headline every day until the issue is resolved. High crimes and misdemeanors bring impeachment. Treason has a noose in hot pursuit. High government officials tried and convicted and sentenced to hanging: Now that's a story that would sell ink and be a major pay-per-view event. The proceeds could settle the national debt.
