Most of the rank-and-file conservatives with whom we might interact get their information from conservative media sources. Republican politicians are ensconced within it as well. Inside the walls of that closed environment, facts that do not jibe with conservative ideology or the conservative interpretation of events are twisted, turned on their head, or simply ignored.

Ralph Nader is right to have encouraged a debate on anti-Semitism against Arab Americans compared with the response to anti-Semitism against Jewish Americans. There is a shameful double standard and it must end.

For two years Beck has targeted the political science professor as a Marxist Machiavelli whose writings constitute a manifesto for a radical revolution. But in recent months Beck has escalated his hate even further.

Alex Knepper may have a penchant for the occasional uncouth sexual joke, but David Swindle's assertion that he represents a danger to children is entirely unwarranted -- and potentially libelous.

It was so thrilling to learn I'd just joined Shirley Sherrod as an actor in another gussied-up, phony "journalism" beatdown by the conservative crackpot Andrew Breitbart.

Glenn Beck: "Historian" for a Troubled America

Joseph A. Palermo | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Joseph A. Palermo

Beck's shtick is a backhanded nod to the relevance of history as a discipline and to historians not only as educators, but also as the keepers of the nation's myths.

Aimed at voters in the battleground states the week of September 11, the film is more than a scare tactic or a campaign ploy. It smacks of classic propaganda, boosted by the authority of the Times brand.
