    no match for demagoguery and historical revisionism to an electorate sadly under-informed or misinformed.

    Watching Morning Joe Millionaires with no knowledge of or interest in economics mock a Nobel Prize winning Professor of Economics at Princeton (who, as opposed to virtually the entire MSM apparatus, has been mostly right since forever) on a daily basis, tells us everything we need to know about the message the five corporations who control over 85% of all news in the U.S. want the citizenry to believe.

    While polling on individual issues gives most progressive positions two thirds to three quarters approval, it would take banning all radio but Tom Hartmann, all TV news except for Democracy Now, and mandatory two hours daily reading of DailyKos to bring the electorate's voting patterns in line with their own interests.    

    Excellent diary, by the way. I'd better get it up on FB so my relatives can fume.
