30 Days of Abraham Lincoln – Day 29

Truth is generally the best vindication against slander. — 1864

My Take — The truth shall set you free, as the saying goes.  Writers like Linoge and Borepatch, who cross swords with hucksters using only their brains and their words, do more to shine light on an artificially dark world in one post than I can ever do in a lifetime of singing into the echo chamber.  The proper defense against a press that is dedicated to only telling the news that they like is to broadcast the truth for any who wish to hear.  Those who watch and report, even when we are admittedly partisan in what we watch, are the answer to “Who shall watch the watchers?” when the watchers have decided that being impassive observers does not serve their personal ambitions.
