  •  Media must be held to account (4+ / 0-)

    Turn off your TVs. Cancel your cable. When you buy a cable package, you're supporting that pollution of our public discourse with Republican propaganda.

    The media is primarily responsible for the fix we're in. Not only do they let Republicans get away with lying, they aid and abet it.

    NPR is only marginally less bad.

      One year ago, after 40+ years. It is magnificent to be free from those intrusions on my mind. If I want to watch a TV show, I can catch most of them online (where I can also see clips of TV news). Reading sources I generally respect -- The Guardian, McClatchy, Reuters, and, yes, Bloomberg -- informs me, rather than irritating me.

      PLUS, my $155/month cable bill has been reduced to a $83/month for DSL, free long-distance, and a land-line from an excellent two-county phone company.

      After a year's experience, I consider it one of the best things I ever did!
