  •  it's scary how successful Republicans (13+ / 0-)

    and their right-wing puppet-masters have been in establishing a permanent propaganda machine. To them, FOX news and right-wing radio is probably only the start of a long-term effort. They've also destroyed PBS and NPR, making them too afraid of the right-wingers to ever commit actual journalism anymore (which is, no doubt, part of their ongoing strategy). And what remains of this country's mainstream news media is, increasingly, caving the Republicans' insistence on false equivalence (forcing them to spew blatantly false and dishonest Republican propaganda in the name of "balance.")

    Between what's going on in this country's media and Citizens United, we progressives have a tough road ahead of us.

    If progressives can't successfully battle the money and power of the right wing in a state like Wisconsin...

    •  in fact...come to think of it... (6+ / 0-)

      ...late last year, Sinclair Broadcasting, a very conservative Republican organization, bought two of our markets three local stations. Since then...the local news has gotten much more conservative in its focus.

      ...which makes me wonder...is this going on elsewhere in the country? How would anyone know?

      ...this sure would make for an interesting expose for anyone who has time to pursue it
