Have you read about George Santos, the newly-elected Congressman who, it’s now revealed, lied about his background extensively? People are asking how he got away with this, and can he now be removed from office.
I have a different question: Where the hell were the media? We simply don’t have journalism any more, we have various forms of “news entertainment” and editorializing. A first-year journalism student could have easily invalidated Santos’s claims by checking public records of schools attended, employment, awards bestowed, and so forth. If this were revealed prior to the election, he never would have won. But here he is, taking his seat in the House.
Not a newspaper, a radio station, a TV affiliate raised any issues about his rather exemplary background—all of which was false.
Maybe Bernie Madoff should have waited a bit longer to pull off his Ponzi Scheme.
