“It’s obscene. It’s outrageous, OK? It shows that the Democrats are nothing now but words and fantasy and hallucination and Hollywood. There’s no journalism left. What’s happened to The New York Times? What’s happened to the major networks? It’s an outrage.
“I’m a professor of media studies, in addition to a professor of humanities, OK? And I think it’s absolutely grotesque the way my party has destroyed journalism. Right now, it is going to take decades to recover from this atrocity that’s going on where the news media have turned themselves over to the most childish fraternity, kind of buffoonish behavior.”
ELDER PATRIOT – That was what Camille Paglia told Sean Hannity’s listeners on Tuesday. Paglia has been a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, since 1984.
Paglia has been a respected member of the Left for a long time. So much so that in 2005 Paglia was ranked No. 20 on a Prospect/Foreign Policy poll of the top 100 public intellectuals.
Intellectually honest old school classical liberals are speaking out about the extremism that now defines today’s Democratic Party and that has been supported by a wholly dishonest MSM.
The loss of its intellectual authority is isolating the Democratic Party more and more as the party has become a haven for emotionally driven, historically ignorant, and selfish misfits.
