Whatever happened to putting our country first? It seems to me any global unrest becomes an excuse to bash our President for political purposes.
No one, of course, is suggesting that merely disagreeing with Obama is evidence of racism. That's clearly not true. But we have a political party and a right-wing media machine that pander incessantly to the racist reactionaries in our society, often through code words.
We think about our friends and how much we love them. If we have children, we care about getting them grown. We care about our parents and how they are aging. We wonder about our partners. If they will live as long as we do. Women don't worry about being f*ckable.
Many in Congress and elsewhere would be surprised to learn that undocumented presence of aliens is not a crime under U.S. law.
Many politicians in Washington do not agree with one another but, the Republican Party seems to go beyond disagreement and promote hatred. They hate O...
If our country is ever to get out of its current polarized rut, our media habits need to change. People need to get their news from a wide range of sources and go beyond their own echo chambers to get various perspectives on the news. They need news that they can rely on.

The history offered is a fictional form of the Pilgrim story, the one most of us of a certain age grew up with and not unexpected given the author's known conservative stance. But it is the writing itself that really makes it such a dreadful book.
It doesn't take an MBA to realize paying Rush Limbaugh $50 million a year to anchor cellar-dweller stations in major markets and to host a program that attracts elderly men but fewer national advertisers isn't a blueprint for future success.
A few years ago, Rush Limbaugh was so powerful a force in talk radio that when a Republican crossed him, that person would feel compelled to come on Limbaugh's and apologize in the most sniveling obsequious manner. The theory seemed to be: Insult Limbaugh, lose an election.
Eric Boehlert's Media Blog is no different from the daily propaganda pronouncements issued by Media Matters, his attack dog partisan political advocacy. It is filled with fictions, based on nonsensical claims that don't stand up to even casual scrutiny.
