    There's a huge army of paid bloggers and trolls out there who get paid for pouncing on newspaper blogs and articles, liberal or moderate sites, and anywhere else they can misinform, misdirect the conversation, or create chaos in the commentary.  

    Remember John McCains campaign in 2008?  They enlisted an army of regular folks who could earn McPoints (traded in for merchandise) for blogging pro-McCain.  They needed to submit their link to earn the credits.

    It's getting worse.  Articles in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that are even slightly bad news for the GOP get pounced on immediately and often by an entire cadre of likely paid bloggers and their innumerable sockpuppets leaving the comments section with hundreds, if not over 1000 comments.  Difficult to sort through all the crap to get to additional information and insight because of the chaos they create.

    But that's the whole point of it.  Make things unreadable, frustrating, or so filled with propaganda that folks don't even bother.  

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.

      Especially the poor souls with shitty spelling and even worse arguments.

      Rote Roger Ails FOX brainwashing flushed through a filter of uneducated and not "intellectually blessed" leaves a film of something.

      I'm old and jaded and find the whole damn thing slightly ridiculous.

      It really is the smart ones who need watching. The real threat comes from the "think-tanks" and the access to the funding IMO.
