    I was writing got lost, which is probably good. Basically, the 112th Congress is going to go down in history as the least productive (in terms of actually doing their, you know, job of governing). Fortunately, I don't think the MSM will be able to rewrite that history.

    Besides that, the MSM is becoming increasingly irrelevant. Those who used to regularly watch the tv news or read the newspaper are now able to find news online much more quickly, so the old means of disseminating news are becoming obsolete. And most of the younger population have never developed a habit of paying attention to tv or print news, so they don't need to be weaned off it.

    I think we're better off using sites like DKos and social media to try to shape the narrative. That's partly why I'm here--it's too expensive to try to fight the GOP in TX media outlets, so I'm trying to learn how to end-run them.
