Re: prosecutor-purgegate


What explains the failure of the mainstream media to cover the purge scandal for so long, and so many other scandals? Do you think somebody just set up newspaper editors to cheat on their wives, and threatened to tell if the editors wouldn’t play ball when they come back some day and ask for something?

It wouldn’t be that hard to do, when you think about it. People wouldn’t talk about it.

This is just one of those familiar TV conventions that we all have to deal with - subtitles are bad, but we still keep the accents. Kind of like how people in ye olde times always speak proper British English no matter where they are (think HBO's Rome). Or how space aliens always speak english. Or how computer hackers can break into any system after a few moments of furious typing...
