We've decided to launch an award to call attention to mainstream figures who make utterly false or statements that have the effect of denigrating an entire group of people. We're calling it the Dobbsy, in honor of Lou Dobbs.
If it is a solution to the energy crisis, the banking crisis, or our over stressed military, we need expert input. For that input to morph into solutions, we need focused collaborative work and lowered voices.
It seemed that most of the clearly biased shows on cable news had been publicly outed as such, but viewers learned there was yet another conservative Republican show:Election Center with Campbell Brown.
Some have said that progressives shouldn't go on shows like Dobbs'. I vehemently disagree. We have to fight for our issues in any venue offered to us, knowing that if we fight effectively we will win the war of ideas.
