Britain's brainwashed and manipulated mainstream media and Atlas Shrugged

An amazingly perceptive and apt small passage, which exactly fits the present state of Britain's mainstream media, both print and broadcast, comes in Chapter VIII of Atlas Shrugged, I quote it here:

" The reporters who came to the press conference in the office of the John Galt Line were young men who had been trained to think that their job consisted of concealing from the world the nature of its events. It was their daily duty to serve as audience for some public figures who made utterances about the public good, in phrases carefully chosen to convey no meaning. It was their daily job to sling words together in any combination they pleased, so long as the words did not fall into a sequence saying something specific. They could not understand the interview now being given to them."

Details of how to obtain this book are on my previous posting on Atlas Shrugged.
