Russell Crowe tells it like it should be

As always, public awareness followed by indignation comes waaaaaaaaay too late….

The press has lost it’s primary roles as guardian of individual freedoms, constructive critic and counter weight to monopolistic political and/or commercial power since a long time. Of course, the reason we’ve lost the benign and necessary role of the press is because we’ve collectively let it happen. Because as society becomes wealthier and more comfortable we become ever more inclined to disregard what is clearly undesirable if not criminal behavior. Luckily, the Internet has picked up where the press left off, but that’s another story.

Anyway. Better late than never for this type of film or book to come out I suppose.
