“We will never have the elite smart people on our side.”
Not any where near elite and never considered myself smart. Until I listened to this. I actually, don’t think that I’m smart in the traditional sense. But I do my best to read, read and read some more so that maybe have something behind my opinions. Maybe?
Santorum also claimed “the media” and “colleges and universities” would not be “on our side” because “they want to tell you what to do.”
Interesting since I’ve been reading that the Koch brothers are donating tons of money, strings attached to colleges and universities. Strings being their choice of faculty and curriculum. Telling them what to do, what to teach. Maybe Santorum isn’t on the Koch email distribution list for their updates on education?
Granted my experience working in the “media” was framed in an full summer internship while in school. As were several friends in college, during the Gulf War. If you are in the media, you see everything. Un-edited, un-filtered straight up news from the world. Video feed that comes through from where ever is not edited. It is as it happens. That lead me to this conclusion. If the media is “liberal”, it’s because they see everything. Un-edited and un-filtered. So even if they never tell the whole story or tend to lean one way or the other. Depending on the network. It’s because they see it all. If you saw it all, you might think or feel differently.
