write about judicial fraud & judges' self-given right to acf from the bench "maliciously and corruptly"
Please address judicial fraud -- a pernicious phenomenon that makes judging arbitrary, judges claiming to have a self-given (in Pierson v. Ray) right to act from the bench "maliciously and corruptly," thus totally eviscerating "due process of the law", as explained in an article from the (now-defunct) Albuquerque Weekly Alibi: https://alibi.com/news/61032/Judicial-Fraud-Impacts-Americans.html
While when I wrote it I surmised that the media refuses to cover judicial fraud because journalists and judges are in cahoots, I now think it may even be worse, the media seeing the judiciary not as part of the government, but as the check on it, and hence, as a benign force not needing to be scrutinized. Thus, the "government" journalists investigate is limited to the executive and the legislature. Or perhaps, journalists are at pains to help maintain public trust in judiciary, and willingly close their eyes on fraud committed by judges from the bench. Perhaps, writing about judicial fraud is such a new proposition that journalists simply don't know what to think, and refusal is simply an indication of their confusion.
Either way, the silence of the press helps the judiciary to hide from the public the fact that it is often as abusive and corrupt as the other two branches of government can be -- and in the absence of press scrutiny has become so brazen that it justifies its practices by arguing that in Pierson v. Ray judges gave themselves the right to act from the bench "maliciously and corruptly," no less.
Which requires complete paradigm shift in reporting -- the judiciary has to be viewed as an integral part of government, and hence, be put on the radar and investigated for the bad and illegal things it does.
