I pray for the day when most Americans wake to the fact that the Republican Party is set on making war against this nation's citizens. I give you example number 4,236,291.
It's time for a Revolution, bitches.
One more vile enemy that needs to be named is the mainstream media in this country, which no longer cares--at all--about substance or democracy, about fairness and decency, but ratings, revenue, and divisiveness. The mainstream media is so cancerous that I'm certain at this point that unless massive, systemic changes occur within its newsrooms and on its programs, that this nation is doomed. Forget climate change; forget Russia; forget North Korea; forget crumbling infrastructure; forget automation: unless We the People revolt against the mainstream media and force it to change its immoral practices, we don't stand a fucking chance.
I for one refuse to support them. I refuse to watch CNN or Fox News; I refuse to watch cable news of any kind, in fact; and I refuse to watch network news as well. I support only progressive, independent voices like Daily Kos and ProPublica. I also try to support individual voices like Norman Ornstein or Seth Abramson or Jared Yates Sexton. There are many, many others.
You should be doing this too. Stop supporting the continued destruction of common decency, common sense, and our democracy by these giant "news" organizations. They aren't news; they are nothing more than legitimized Weekly World News outlets, nothing more, and their reckoning is way overdue.
