Perverse Ethics of Mainstream Media

I think Rabbi Michael Lerner hits the nail on the head with this essay.

[…] the only crime against humanity that the media takes seriously and the politicians fear is being exposed for personal sexual immorality.

His point is that horrible things are being done to “normal” people, poor and third-world people, the U.S. Constitution, and the environment by parts of our government and big corporations, but the media seem to accept them all as normal and unworthy of investigation or questioning. But the discovery that a politician has had “un-Christian” sex with someone brings on a media frenzy.
