Fear dictates the work of the journalists


Hthomas For almost five decades, Helen Thomas has been a White House reporter covering America's leaders with a pleasant dose of skepticism. She published a book last week called “Watchdogs of Democracy” where she describes her fellow reporters as becoming “complacent, complicit and gullible” and also as mainly “afraid of being considered “unpatriotic or un-American”. She also said that when it really mattered - when, in her opinion, the media could have perhaps prevented the invasion of Iraq - the press failed to do its public service by not challenging the association Iraq-9/11 that was so obviously wrong.

The Prophet Rael made the following comment regarding the fear of the journalists:

The same thing applies also to journalists covering the religious minorities called "cults" or "sects" ...especially in France. No journalists want to challenge the official listing in France of all Religious minorities as dangerous "sects"...
