Blast from the Past. At Daily Kos on this date in 2009With A Whimper And A Whine:

When Hillary Clinton spoke of a "vast right wing conspiracy" in 1998 as she lashed out at the attacks against then president Bill Clinton, many (especially on the right) thought her paranoid, and the right still mocks her to this day regarding her choice of phrase. But in the decade or so since Clinton made that statement, various researchers have revealed the size and scope of the network of conservative groups and individuals who indeed so operate in concert to advance the conservative agenda.

On the communications size, the network of radio, TV, and blogs create a right-wing noise machine, which, in the past, has proven astonishingly successful at creating scandal out of the benign or making fiction seem like fact (i.e., Obama is a Muslim, or he's unpatriotic because he didn't wear a flagpin).

The April 15th "tea protests" revealed more about this right-wing noise machine than they did about some purported coast-to-coast anti-liberal revolution.



On today's Kagro in the Morning show, nothing in the world existed this morning but the situation in Boston. Greg Dworkin and Armando joined us to watch the media circus. Did we treat it too lightly? Did we break a few rules, and take a few liberties with our listening guests? We did. We also looked away for a few minutes and connected some GunFAIL dots, realizing there was actually an accidental discharge at a gun show every single weekend in January! Just for kicks, we threw in stories about New York hipsters raising infants diaper-less, and physicists exploring whether the entire universe might be a computer simulation.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
