Back in March of 2001, the author wrote an editorial spelling out clearly that Alan Greenspan must be removed from office and he was more of the problem than any solution. Suddenly, Greenspan decided to raise the interest rate for absolutely no reason, better than 10 times and that created the major recession of that time period. Economists usually advocate raising interest rates to control inflation. But, at that time, there was absolutely no reason to do so because there was no inflation. Even menial and low-level jobs required relevant experience. But, sadly, when people select a President for the US, they never ask for relevant experience. What the author is upset about is the mainstream media taking sides and bringing disgrace to journalism and to humanity by being one-sided, not impartial and exhibiting zero editorial integrity. The other reason why the so-called mainstream media had resorted to trash journalism is that trash journalism sells newspapers whereas high-quality and high-integrity journalism does not sell as much.
