    and NPR has increasingly been made the lapdog of the right since it was the last bastion of truth.

    •  True But Get A Load Of These Two Stories. (0+ / 0-)

      Right-wing radio begins effort to rebuild links to the blue-collar workers the Ryan Plan and Govs. Kasich, Walker, and Scott have alienated.

      The NRSC is attacking Warren (the presumed MA candidate) for supporting OWS/99%ers because, whether the broken media reports it or not, they have to get blue collar voters back in the fold.  

      Thus, a national GOP effort to shore up the traditional cultural divide between blue collar workers and liberals.  Because Rove et al, all know their voter suppression won't work if blue collar whites start casting votes based upon their economic interests in OH, WI, FL, and PA.

      Bottomline: we don't need the MSM when our families are suffering under the boots of monsters like Kasich, Walker, Scott, and Ryan.  They didn't in WI or OH - where millions of signatures were collected - and OWS didn't need it either.
