Presstitute is a contraction of press prostitute. It is a term that has come into widespread use to describe the media’s service in behalf of the narratives of the corrupt Western ruling Establishment. That the presstitutes serve the material and political interests of their Establishment owners is completely obvious. But the media did not give up its integrity for material interests alone. The media have become acolytes to the religious ideology of “social justice.“
In the Winter 2021 issue of the Manhatten Institute’s City Journal, Martin Gurri explains that the media have abandoned all pretense of objective reporting, because the media, or enough of it, believe that objectivity upholds systemic racism and defeats social justice.
The ideology of systemic racism is institutionalized in the US educational system and in the NY Times “1619 Project.”
