No, we don’t get to blame the people for the excesses of jerk Republicans.
This assault on information and truth has been going on for decades. Under Reagan there was a dramatic shift toward “market” — one-dollar-one-vote — sources of information and away from objective, citizen-oriented democratic — one-person-one-vote — sources. This market-sourced information necessarily reflects a conservative/corporate view because it is driven by money and profit instead of humanity and humanity’s needs.
Nice list of blogs there, but you probably read most of them anyway.
Thank you, Campaign for America’s Future.
