This week contained a spat of true confessions from the talking heads that deliver the corporate line on your favorite channel. Geraldo Rivera used to be the poster child for not quite so verifiable news, now his place has been taken by NBC's anchor Brian Williams who was suspended for six months without pay for claiming he rode a chopper in Iraq that took ground fire while reporting the war. Seems people are satisfied with his replacement Lester Holt. Dishonorable mention goes to the "Mayor of Bullshit Mountain", Bill O'Reilly, who claimed he covered a massacre by an American-trained battalion in the war in El Savaldor. NOT! Nowadays its not only politicians that lie through their teeth but also the corporate hacks who report their bullshit.
