The Fourth Estate known as The Press is in a very sad state. The NEWS from everywhere and all outlets has turned into spin, innuendo and stories which feature more prominently, the personality writing the story rather than the facts themselves as the primary information. In that light, reporting NEWS has lost all sense of it’s proper decorum and purpose by those who say they’re upholding the values of truth and the cold hard light of day as to the facts.

The Late Legendary American Newsman/icon Walter Cronkite passed away and left us all this quote: “I am worried about the encroachment of entertainment upon the NEWS.”

The Late Legendary American Newsman/icon Edward R. Murrow also passed away and left us this quote: “We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it.”

There were many public figures critical of Mr. Cronkite & Mr. Murrow throughout their years for some personal views – BUT – Walter Cronkite and Edward R. Murrow were newsmen, and there is not one of those very same public figures who would dispute that fact.

They were colleagues. They were good friends and in a sense, fearless proprietors of America’s Fourth Estate

The public everywhere is being usurped by the information they’ve been led to digest as the best available. The content providers have little verifiable “Press Ethic.” The institutions who ostensibly impart this present ethic have been co-opted by an uber-corporate mentality and colleges have turned into diploma mills. Real critical thought has taken a backseat to shoddy research. Editorial has turned into a slur machine, rather than a well considered balanced opinion, and as much as possible, be void of political aim.

(TCP) CHICAGO has been founded upon principles to help turn this tide back on itself, and to that end, as it washes ashore again to grace the sands of our beaches it doesn’t erode further, that which has been lost.

Thank you for gracing us with your audience and your trust.
