I don't accept your premise that the 'media' has a duty to be a 'guardian'. Woodrow Wilson presided over this nonsense of 'the press,' when he took over radio waves. The first amendment acknowledges the right of the PEOPLE to express themselves with 'the press.' i.e., the printing press. The notion that, "the press," is a government licensed cabal of corporate scumbags is false and is the very reason we find ourselves being propagandized. Just the same, public education is another arm of the left. People are literally allowing themselves and their children to be molded and shaped by their enemies and they won't admit it. Alas, it is too late now, but that is the truth and that is a fact.
