    So why didn't Feingold, Conyers, etc. go around time and send their letters to TPM, DailyKos, FDL instead?  The bloggers could have pushed Klien's bull shit and Time's refusal to let them respond into the MSM.  Ed Shultz was complaining that Dems won't use liberal talk radio either.  Thom Hartmann said Edwards is the only one who come on with a mandate to review and approve questions.  Why aren't they using alternative media?

        and when they are there they either aren't asked these questions, or don't get invited back if they work these kinds of things into their statements.  That's why you're more likely to see the ones who don't rock the boat or stray from the established media narrative.

        dkmich has it right, they need to learn more and capitalize on other sources of media.

      While it is preaching to the choir to tell us what they think, it establishes the paper trail to demonstrate the institutional bias, and their bonafides as patient-beyond-reason, reasonable, solution-driven folks.  

      That is exactly the framing they need to embrace in order to provide the necessary contrast to the screeching minority and their fractious, fickle, petty partisan "friends" on the other side of the isle.

      Why does Shrub never talk about his first wife, Reality? He divorced her with prejudice and all of his alimony checks to her have bounced.

      Why do we expect a right-wing publication to publish apologies or retractions of previously printed material?

      Wingers are fundamentally incapable of apologies or retractions... unless it's because of alcohol or mental illness.
