Government Schools Have Succeeded

"It's not the Internet that's killing journalism, it's illiteracy. The idea that the Internet is replacing print journalism as a news source is an illusion. There is no one-to-one exchange of people canceling newspaper subscriptions and people logging onto the Internet. There is, instead, a shrinking readership of news, period, regardless of whether the news is delivered by computer or by print," says Robert Stacy McCain of The Other McCain.

This is not surprising.

Government schools in America have dumbed down the last few generations of people. Bureaucrats have felt it more important to give students sensitivity training than any type of ability to read, think, or critically analyze.

America is reaping what it has sown for the last several decades. We have a bunch of confident incompetents.
