Pity the Poor Billionaires

Bill Moyers | Posted 08.01.2012 | Politics
Bill Moyers

So-called "mega donors" are upset that their campaign contributions are being exposed to public view, ignoring our right to know who is giving money to candidates -- and the opportunity to try to figure out why. The sound you hear is the world's smallest violin, say, a teeny-tiny Stradivarius insured for millions.

Are Voters Stupid, Or Are They Just Routinely Subjected To Terrible Political Reporting?

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.15.2012 | Media

When the Senate's own attempt to form a deficit commission foundered, David Broder posited that it was the fault of Democratic "committee chairmen." This was comically wrong -- 10 of those committee chairs voted for it, versus six against, which was not enough to decide the matter. The measure failed because seven Republican cosponsors of the bill bailed on it. This stuff isn't that hard to figure out. And yet this is just a single example out of many where ordinary Americans haven't been properly informed on a variety of important details about an issue.
