"Politicians often rely on a complacent press to enact a draconian agenda. Rather than inform the public of the effects of a policy and expose politicians' lies, in such cases the media validate the spin of the people in power. Right now, the mainstream media are failing in their duty to inform Americans about the chained CPI, (Consumer Price Index), a cut to Social Security’s COLA (cost-of-living adjustment) that is likely to be considered by the bipartisan special committee charged with producing a $1.5 trillion deficit reduction package six months from now."
