The article begins describing the uniformly unreal eulogies of H.W. Bush in nearly all corporate media in the US Empire as an illustration of the Empire's veneration of imperialism, and ends by noting that corporate media compulsively ignore signs that the fascist capitalist system is leading us inevitably toward environmental catastrophe and our extinction as a human species.
All this matters because the media's veneration of Bush, and western leaders generally, is a glaring symptom of a deep truth about the corporate media: their primary function is to project a severely distorted view of world events, one that embodies state and corporate priorities rooted in power and short-term profit at any cost.
The public is perennially starved of rational facts about the real state of the planet, and the greed-driven policies that hold sway over electorates and even over global ecosystems. The appalling consequence is that we are now certainly headed for climate catastrophe.
