I'm reminded of that oft-quoted Native American parable in which the grandfather tells the young boy that there are two wolves constantly at battle within him, one of pettiness, greed, anger and jealousy and the other of peace, benevolence, love and kindness. The boy asks which wolf will win and the grandfather says "The one you feed." The big fucking problem I have with the media is the wolf it chooses to feed.
