    Question College Professor's explanation as to why Journalists are usually Liberal.

    Why are Journalists Liberal?

    This is her explanation:

    Journalists tend to be more educated.
    Those who are more educated tend to be Liberal.

    What do you guys think?

    Education today is conditioning. People are conditioned to think the state is the answer. Today's liberals believe government is the answer. Thus those who are more educated are more often liberal. It's perfectly logical, just not in the way I guess it was intended

    The younger you get them the easier they are to condition.
    Ignatius' proposal "Give me a child until he is seven and I will give you the man", still holds good, probably more so now than in those days as conditioning starts in kindergarten these days. Here we have just had a seven year old suspended from school for 'racial abuse' - his crime? he asked a coloured boy 'Are you brown because you come from Africa?'

    I think that if we define "more educated" by its actions as "more brainwashed" or "more indoctrinated", then yes...I would agree.

    That's what most colleges are now: indoctrination centers. They have to be because they receive federal funds, or because they accept students that pay for college via government loans. Therefore, the schools have to supply the students with massive overdoses of humanism, revised history, Keynesian economics, and other lies and falsehoods designed to keep them stupid.

    Correct. Economic ignorance is the best way for the gov't to convince people of the need for the gov't in our economy.

    I agree full-heartedly with you guys. Education most certainly is conditioning/brain-washing.
    As I've said before, they often teach opinion as fact.
