Back in the days of radio and intelligent talking heads, i.e., well-informed commentators, it was very common to hear what some may call Op-Eds or media journalists giving opinions.  None was more famous than Paul Harvey [1].  Mr. Harvey (Paul Harvey Aurandt) was a radio broadcaster for the ABC network from the 1950s through the 1990s, and very well admired before the current meme of ‘political correctness’, I think I should offer.  He had as many as 24 million listeners a week; his program was carried by 1,200 radio stations, 400 Armed Forces Network stations and his work was published in 300 newspapers. [1]

In 2005, Paul Harvey was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the USA’s most prestigious civilian award.

In my opinion, they just don’t make journalists like Paul Harvey anymore!  Personally, I really don’t know if he spouted the party line of vested interests, but there’s one Paul Harvey program that stands out, at least for me, which demonstrates his willingness to think outside the box and also to go out on a limb to warn folks about issues.  That program was aired April 3, 1965 and titled “If I Were the Devil,” a precognitive essay, if there ever was one, about the status of life in the current meme-driven regime of the United States in the 21st century.

Harvey’s oral essay with video is less than 3 minutes, but it packs a jolting, spine-tingling precognitive realism of what’s actually happened to what used to be the United States of America and its unfortunate fall from grace, as some could label it.

Paul Harvey, in my opinion, couldn’t fit in with today’s corporate-controlled-and-spun news networks.

He’d be considered extremely politically incorrect, in my opinion.  Somehow I’d like to see his style of journalism come back, but don’t hold your breath.  What do you think?
