My favorite quote was this:
Meanwhile, conservative television and talk radio programs are full of false anger, intended to scare Americans. I think some genuine frustration at this misleading tactic is overdue.
Too few people are willing to come forward and be blunt about this, despite the fact that we all see it, whatever our political persuasions are (though depending on that some are more likely to dismiss its corrosive effects than others). We need truly accountable news media. Their even-handed whatever the merits standard procedures have proved themselves open to abuse. They need to start casting doubt where it's due, though I'd like it if they avoided playing up people too much for saying something likely to be accurate; it's the attitude towards falsehood and abuse of institutions that has to change, the mirror image of this, rewarding someone simply for following the rules would be a very bad road to go down.
