The dumbing down of the American populace began a couple of decades ago and is now coming to its unfortunate fruition, with people having abandoned critical thinking in favor of any narrative concocted by a corrupt media establishment. Mainstream media is so intent on promoting its own point of view that truth and accuracy have fallen victim to the end justifying the means.

But maybe mainstream media could never be trusted. The other day I was watching a documentary on the Titantic, and initial newspaper headlines emblazoned across front pages declared that though the Titanic had sunk, all passengers were safe in lifeboats and headed home.
