Want to make a difference? If you're a member if the Mainstream Media, how about stating by not lying?
How about admitting that the stories you tell to illustrate your narrative are lies.When Rush Limbaugh discusses this Make a Difference mentality among liberals, he points out the ugly truth: “Hitler made a difference.” That is to say, an ambition to decisively influence world history doesn’t always lead to good results and has frequently caused catastrophes and atrocities. From the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror to the Ukrainian terror-famine of the 1930s, to the “Great Leap Forward” of Mao’s China to the “Killing Fields” of Pol Pot’s Cambodia, history is littered with examples of how idealists who want to Make a Difference can become fanatics who kill innocent people in the name of “progress” and “social justice.” Always, these radical death-cults rely on propaganda to demonize their opponents and incite their supporters to hatred of their enemies.
