The obligation to truth has been heavily neglected and discarded through the death of editorial independence, since corporate media’s primary goal appears to be the ‘bottom line’ and political access rather than presenting truthful reporting to the public.

Second Amendment’s Real History

The Second Amendment was ratified to preserve slavery. Here’s the proof. I found an article on the website Truthout, written by Thom Hartmann, and it made it very clear on the intent of the ratification of the Second Amendment.
