They are us

'We' let 'them' get away with...

We let the News and Record disintegrate into a nothingness of non-journalism

We let the Rhino sink into propaganda

We let the mayor and friends pilfer higher taxes without transparency

How many know Greensboro's City Council voted to raise taxes this year?

Did the TV news stations report it?

Did whomever who covers City Council for dwindling numbers of local paper and television readers and viewers not even understand the implications of their malpractice and passivity until the pain hits the majority?

Distracted 'we' are by the technological powers that be

The "Great and Powerful Oz" didn't put anyone else's interests before his own until he was called out

Same with the local oligarchs behind the curtains

Cowardice is on exhibit by our local press

The parasites among us roam free as what was our fourth rail abdicates responsibility

"Fourth branch of government

The concept of the media or press as a fourth branch 
stems from a belief that the news media's responsibility 
to inform the populace is essential to the healthy functioning of the democracy.

The phrase "Fourth Estate" 
may be used to emphasize the independence of the press 
particularly when this is contrasted with the press as a "fourth branch".
