Corbett Report: Crashes of Convenience and the Death of Michael Hastings

Hastings was the Rolling Stone reporter that got Gen. McCrystal fired. At about the 9 minute mark, in an interview with Cenk, Hastings describes how when he worked for Newsweek the editor would cut out any good stories that went against the grain of the typical MSM crap. He explains how the editors serve the establishment's agenda. That's why he went to work for Rolling that he could get the real news out. It appears that got him killed.

“If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?”
― Frederic Bastiat, The Law
