    apologist Ari Shapiro as a reporter and commentator. Oh wait, they already did that.

    Also: this morning on Talk of the Nation's Political Junky segment, Neil Conan got away with twice saying that the difference between Obama's payroll tax reduction proposal and the Republicans was that Obama wants to impose a surcharge on incomes over a million while the Republicans want to extend the tax cut to "everyone."

    This despite the fact that the Republicans' last House proposal to fund the payroll tax holiday would have raised taxes on everyone making below $200k while lowering taxes on everyone above $200k, and especially on incomes over a million.

    The media, NPR included (actually, NPR especially) is institutionally incapable of reporting that Republicans ever blatantly propose a policy that coddles the rich. The more blatant the proposal, the more likely the media will simply lie about it.

    This is our time. We can do this. We can change the world.
