I suppose the honesty is refreshing.
There has to come a point when the “respectable,” non-Fox News, non-AM talk radio media realizes that every single factual assertion made by right-wing media outlets are utterly false until proven accurate. We are dealing with the journalistic equivalent of sociopaths, people who simply refuse to feel guilt or remorse when they lie. It makes no sense for certain media outlets and pundits to make shit up repeatedly and somehow still be considered legitimate sources of information. It’s bad enough that media ownership is concentrated in the hands of self-interested conglomerates. Now we live in a society where you can lie with minimum damage to your credibility. All you need is a large audience of political cultists for whom truth doesn’t matter.
