The faster the internet goes, the faster misinformation can be spread. My anecdotal perspective is that we were at warp speed several years ago. Now what?
In Santorum's book, affordable health care is as much an injustice as apartheid, the systematic dehumanization of 85 percent of South Africa's population that existed until Mandela and others brought it to an end.
Rather than giving because it's the right thing to do, these charities give aid in exchange for religious conversion.
In yet another dramatic revelation flowing out of whistleblower Edward Snowden, a journalism textbook from 1983 has been sent to several large media outlets, including the Washington Post, New York Times and the trailer park where Fox News is thought to originate.
On this 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, the real snub comes not, as Fox News claims, from President Obama for not attending the ceremony, but from Republicans in Congress who have made a mockery of the democratic principle Lincoln proclaimed that day.

Matalin, Reagan and Green debate Obamacare's failed rollout and the GOP's flawless inaction. The panel also discusses how CBS turned Benghazi from a tragedy into a hoax, as well as "Harvard on the Potomac."

When even the government can no longer be trusted to tell the truth, where can Americans go to find out what's important and what should be covered?
Over the course of 5 hours between October 24 and 25, I wrote down every commercial that aired on FOX News during shows hosted by Brett Baier, Gretchen Carlson, Shep Smith, Bill Hemmer and Greta Van Susteren because I wanted to know what was being advertised. Here's what I found.
People who don't test well defend themselves by saying they're "street smart." I'm not sure what that means. If they take the SAT exam in the middle of the street, I suspect their score would still be pretty low.
If you think the widening chasm between the rich and the rest spells trouble for American democracy, have a look at the growing gulf between the information-rich and -poor.
