Schumer and his ilk are schooled in Alinsky’s “rules for radicals”. Ergo they attack independent news sources, attempt to isolate them, and denigrate them. Notice how Schumer smears independent news sources as un-American by implying that the founding fathers would disaprove of them? When a politician attempts to rally me to his side by such arguments as wrapping himself in the American flag, claiming the Constitution supports his position, or making other appeals to patriotism, I run the other way.

People have rejected centralized sources of facts, from kings and queens and priests, to newspapers and television news.
In the same way that 99% of economists assume society must be planned and centralized, Schumer and “the people in power” assume media must operate as a centralized force—as if it’s a…
