    Obama himself offered a full-throated defense. I think Rice decided, to her credit, that it wasn't worth the cost to the policies she supports to make this fight. She fell on her own sword. It couldn't have been easy, and I've got a lot of respect for her.

      related to the ease at which they can create and spread lies and distortions and no single media element does that better than RW talk radio.

      i put up a diary about it last night:

      the left in general continues to downplay its significance and aside from the boycott rush bunch and media matters (limited largely to hate talk) there is no major effort to monitor or respond to these organized and coordinated radio propaganda operations.

      the response usually comes after the nationwide repetition has been blasted across the country for days and weeks. they can turn a molehill into a mountain and a lie into worn 'fact' in a day.

      if the left had reacted to the anita hill swiftboating as they have to the attack on sandra fluke we'd never have clarence thomas on SCOTUS and good public servants like rice could not be treated like this.

      This is a list of 76 universities for Rush Limbaugh that endorse global warming denial, racism, sexism, and GOP lies by broadcasting sports on over 170 Limbaugh radio stations.
