For 100 years, there has been a prejudice In the schools against facts and knowledge. Now we see the same tendency in the media. 

The Times has become the very paradigm of what can only be called Unmedia. There seem to be many striking resemblance to the old media but they don't do much of a job. Thus the term Unmedia. Compare Uncola.

 I think we live in what might be called the Big Silence. Anyway this article explores this idea and gives examples of major stories that have never appeared in the New York Times. Remember, they claim to be the newspaper of record. They have to cover all these stories even if they don't like them.

My own hope is that we go back to knowledge in the schools, and facts in the media. Jefferson said it: we can't expect to be ignorant and free at the same time.
