"BY KARLIN LILLINGTON | Back in 1991,*Vidal declared:
"The corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the
wonders of the Western world. No first world country has ever
managed to eliminate so entirely from its media all objectivity
-- much less dissent."
That quotation can be found, ironically and conveniently enough,
on Microsoft's Bookshelf 98 CD-ROM, a reference collection
packed with 10 works including a dictionary, thesaurus,
encyclopedia, atlas and a curious work called the People's
Chronology -- "a concise chronicle of world events from 3
million B.C. to 1997, and the people who shaped them." "
Remember that saying about history, and victors, and who writes what.
