Of all America's wars over the past century, only World War II has retained mass public approval. In almost all cases, Americans turned against wars they once supported. How should one explain this pattern of disillusionment?

Colin Holtz

Politico is up with a big story this week that should scare any progressive who cares about winning the war of ideas. It is ostensibly about how the right is copying the success of liberal outlets like the Huffington Post. In reality, it is a good reminder of just how badly the right is trouncing the left when it comes to media infrastructure.
