Back in 1939, posted to Berlin for CBS, William Shirer noted (in his diary) the nightmarish unanimity and rage with which the Nazi papers ALL “reported” on the rising threat that POLAND posed to GERMANY. (He’d noted the same thing the year before, when Czechoslovakia had posed the bogus threat.)
If Shirer were alive today, he’d take one look at what our press is pumping out today, and wish he weren’t.
