Fighting Back: An Excellent Example

A fighting Democrat, Brent Budowsky, lays the lumber to Fox "News" and all of its lying con artist helpers here. Budowsky is referring to a right winger who was blatantly lying about him:

Strange but true: the distorted vision of media promoted by Fox News lies at the heart of the Republican problem...

Fox will have a segment with an inherently demeaning title implying Democrats are soft on terrorism or unpatriotic. They bring together a partisan and biased right-wing host with the partisan help hired by the Republican right. Then they find the weakest Potemkin Democrat they can, and conduct a pseudo-debate in Putin style that is rigged from the beginning.

For several years, it worked, but it has now become an albatross around their necks...

The more they win their one-sided debates in their unfair and unbalanced echo chamber of delusion, the more they lose touch and the more they lose votes.

Anyone reduced to calling me an ├╝ber-lefty is out of fighting shape, and I feel her pain. I am glad she enjoys my writing; she would enjoy even more what I privately advise senior Democrats to do, which is consistent with what I write publicly...
We need to fight back EVERY DAY against the Radical Right's Noise Machine. This is a strong example of how you do it.

Radical Right. These words worry me. This is not what this country needs at this time. We need people to come together and work together to mend what has happened in the last 7 1/2 years. If we are name calling, the next Democratic President will be fighting an even more uphill battle that HE wants to. We need a President that is not divisive or polarizing, but one who encompasses America.
