The Media and the War

John Callendar is running an interesting piece entitled “ Media Coverage and the War at Home” that examines how the decreasing quality of journalism in America has affected the climate in his area:

[W]hat about that nearly 70% of US citizens that are getting their news from the cable news channels? It gets worse with the hard-core fans of right-wing talk radio; these people get a non-stop stream of fantasy entertainment, and a lot of them actually believe it, with scary consequences.

Too, too true.
