"You furnish the pictures and I'll furnish the war."
-William Randolph Hearst
He really wasn't kidding. When you own the media, you can start wars (ie, who remembers the NYTimes riling up people in favour of the Iraq War and more recently, the Wall Street Journal for libeling Elizabeth Holmes and misleading the entire American public about Theranos?)
Sadly, many American journalists who write for major publications are not exactly known for their fact-checking nor for their integrity. In many ways, the American media resembles their politics: flashy and full of mind-numbing reality-TV moments filled with pseudo-drama and meaningless monologues about what should be.
Aside from that however, one of the many great things about the US is the stock market.
