Incredibly, the University of Texas at Austin's
School of Journalism and Media recently announced that it has introduced new awards
"honoring reporting as well as exceptional content," named after
former CBS News anchor Dan Rather. In doing so, the school overlooked the fact
that Rather was fired from his job at CBS in 2004 after being caught peddling
fake news based on forged documents in a pathetic attempt to smear then
President George W. Bush.
According to the website
of the same name, “The Dan Rather Medals for News and Guts” will “honor the
process of journalism as
much as the end product.” They will be awarded to “professional and collegiate
journalists who go the extra yard — overcoming obstacles like stonewalling and
harassment — to get the story that tells truth to power.” Or that uses outright
fabrication to advance one’s own personal agenda.
I’m surprised UTA hasn’t yet named an award
after Brian “I Really Thought I was On That Helicopter” Williams.
Everything currently put in front
of us by institutions of higher education, mainstream news organizations, the
entertainment industry, Big Tech, and the majority of our politicians…is a hoax of one kind or another. Truth, logic, and
reason are not only not celebrated by our elite rulers, they are masked up,
locked down and hidden away in quarantine as if they were the most dangerous
viruses imaginable. Because, in effect, they are…to those who are terrified
that the rest of us might one day challenge their power.
So, what’s next in this panoply of
the preposterous? The
Hunter Biden Award for Moral Purity? The Hillary Clinton Award for Magnanimity
in Defeat? The Jeffrey Toobin Award for Outstanding Contributions to ZOOM
Meetings? The Adolf Hitler Award for the Advancement of Zionism? Perhaps the
Joseph R. Biden Award for Election Integrity?
