FOX and the Republican elites have been playing the long game in the shadows. They thought they had their men in Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. What they didn't foresee was a celebrity billionaire with nothing to lose. Trump was also playing the long-game except right out in the open for all to see. And he is the one who might very well succeed.

Marvin Meadors | Posted 08.17.2015 | Entertainment
Marvin Meadors

Donald Trump, like no other candidate can, embodies the right wing's rapid descent into mindlessness and their embrace of know-nothingism. With Trump, there is nothing there besides the huge eponymous banner announcing "Trump" that appears on all his possessions, a bluster, and a golden combover seemingly forever frozen in place.

Talk about a circular right-wing firing squad: Donald Trump; the marginalia at Breitbart Snooze; RedState's Erick Erikson & Co.; Sarah Palin; and her eldest daughter (aka Palin-Lite), are all going after each other in the ultra-rightwing blogosphere, and it's tempting to just sit back and watch the fur fly.

Is Fox News on the brink of becoming (as Pinocchio might say) a "real news organization" instead of the wooden de facto propaganda wing of the Republican Party?

Robert Greenwald | Posted 09.09.2014 | Media
Robert Greenwald

Fox's messaging that government is bad, that human nature is intrinsically more evil than good, that people should be afraid and paranoid, isn't journalism covering the news. It's a world view and narrative that is embedded in the identity and agenda of America's political right wing.

The Sniveling Apologizers at MSNBC Don't Represent Progressives

Cenk Uygur | Posted 04.04.2014 | Media
Cenk Uygur

If MSNBC cared about not presenting liberals as sniveling cowards, they would never go through these debasing apologies one after another. But they don't care about that because the guy who runs the network doesn't give a damn about how progressives look, because he isn't one of them.
