    We've known this since Clinton was POTUS.

    it's more than astonishing people here continue with the "I want a pony!" (I want the MSM to tell the truth about how baaaaad the GOP is!!!)

    Please, let's finally get real here.

      Forward is D not R

      The only stories I've seen about how weird and dysfunctional the modern GOP has become are stories about republicans (e.g., Jeb Bush) making the observation.

        Maddow covers this well, Ed Schultz used to have a segment called "Psycho Talk" (still does?) regarding Teh Crazy. I've not watched his show in awhile.

        The problem is this is not enough coverage.

            That's why I began my comment with "No, not all media." But - if you visit any of the usual right-wing outlets, you'll see they've done an amazing job of walling off Rachel, Ed, and anybody else clearly identified as liberal.

            They do this on the radio also. If you make a comment on a right-wing site and link to DKos, HuffPo, or even NYT, you'll get deluged with comments like, "Disregard! Ignore! That's a lefty site - all propaganda!" etc.

            So what we're talking about here are sources that move in and out of the bubble. And to the hardcore right, there's nothing but Drudge, NRO, Townhall, and Fox.
