Comment: Swann is a Journalistic Hero

Swann is a Journalistic Hero

in an era of misinformation and propaganda.
He's discovering what happens to reporters/writers who ask the "wrong" questions of the right people.
They get stonewalled and blackballed, and some end up going into the buzzsaw, as it's called in the business when an investigative journalist attempts to report the truth that someone in a position of authority or influence wants kept secret.
Too many great journalists in this nation have lost their jobs for doing their jobs, digging too deep and knowing too much.
Unfortunately, most of the ones that are left either won't or are too afraid to do their job for fear of the consequences.
That's why more and more Americans are turning to alternative media, which, as we all know, also can have its own falsehoods and agenda.
