— How Long Should I Delay My Retirement? – Kailey Hagen (DIERSEN: Until August of 1997, when I was 48 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors falsely led me to believe that they were going to let me work until I would be eligible for regular retirement in 2003. Their success in forcing me to take their early retirement “officer” on September 30, 1997 has cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars. In today’s dollars, my Civil Service Retirement System pension is only 41% of what my GAO salary was in 1997.)

THE HILL
— Journalism or partisanship? The media’s mistakes of 2016 continue in 2020 – SHARYL ATTKISSON (DIERSEN: What do you say to journalists who claim to be nonpartisan, but who serve as propagandists for the Democrat Party, Libertarian Party, and/or Green Party?)
https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/516036-journalism-or-partisanship-the-medias-mistakes-of-2016-continue-in-2020
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If there were any doubt left after 2016 as to what too much of the mainstream news media in America has become, it most certainly has been erased in 2020. Too often, many in my industry have revealed themselves as little more than propaganda tools for dueling political sides, no longer reporting the way journalists once did. We compete for the latest anonymous “scoop,” scandalous rumor or unsupported accusation. We pounce on the supposed “bombshell” du jour and hype it on the news, accompanied by endless round robins with political operatives. Many of us don’t even bother to find and report on stories that powerful people and interests aren’t pushing. To do this, too many of us have abandoned basic tenets of journalism. We ignore the suspicious timing of the handout “leaks” or scandals — as if nobody notices. We fail to explore or disclose sources’ motivations or conflicts of interest — as if nobody wonders about them. We don’t even pretend to assess the true news value of the “bombshell.” We’re simply happy to be of service to the propagandists; we invite them to use us, and our superiors reward us with admiration. Many of our peers either repeat the reporting, seek to confirm it using equally dubious methods or discredit it. Rarely do we step back and consider that the whole drama is being orchestrated by political puppet masters who count their successes by the number of news stories they generate.)
