“And that is our job”
Freddie Prinze made “It’s not my job” the catchphrase of his stand-up act and television series Chico and The Man. What, you may ask, is the job of the mainstream media, and how does Elon Musk threaten it? You may have missed the explanation provided by the deep thinkers holding down the fort on MSNBC’s morning show. “She said the quiet part out loud,” as Michael Doran put it.
What more is to be said? This says it all. What oft was thought, but ne’er so well expressed, though not quite in the way that Alexander Pope meant.
