North Cape May - The press has changed over the many years. Remember when the press was the guardian of government we learned in civics class? Remember the invention of the printing press in the 15th century when the common folk could be informed? It was no longer the game of the power brokers exclusively. How things have changed; the press has become a method of "fake news" where local news circulations have been bought up by the powerful. The press is now an instrument of "conform" rather than "inform." Welcome to the connected, unconnected world of the internet/TV where the herd follows the powerful.
