The Obama Administration Lies Systematically

So says Seymour Hersh in this interview in The Guardian. Here is the full quote:
The Obama administration lies systematically, he claims, yet none of the leviathans of American media, the TV networks or big print titles, challenge him.
"It's pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama]," he declares in an interview with the Guardian.
"It used to be when you were in a situation when something very dramatic happened, the president and the minions around the president had control of the narrative, you would pretty much know they would do the best they could to tell the story straight. Now that doesn't happen any more. Now they take advantage of something like that and they work out how to re-elect the president.
I say that if this is news to you, then you have not been paying attention. He finishes interview by saying:
"The republic's in trouble, we lie about everything, lying has become the staple." And he implores journalists to do something about it.
I say that will happen when we see the skies crowded with swine.
