You Are Being Manipulated

You’re being manipulated. A well respected, highly influential news source has cast aside all journalistic integrity to shill for the liberal, GOP establishment candidate in this presidential race.

The New York Times, you say? MSNBC? The Washington Post? No. We all gave up on those “progressive” rags a long time ago.
OMG, the suspense is AGONIZING! Who is it?
Regrettably, the latest media outlet to assume a decidedly yellow hue during this heated primary cycle is the Drudge Report. It pains me to even write this. Drudge has always been both my first and last internet news stops of the day.

The purity purges continue apace.

Couldn't happen to a nicer fedora-d asswipe.

He had about three grain silos full-to-bursting with integrity before, and now? NOTHING.

It is so sad.

There, there. *pats*

You'll find another Drudge out somewhere. I just know you will!

I can't type for shit today. I'm gonna switch things up here and blame you instead of fish.

Did Drudge have a story about how the Whitewater case against Bill Clinton was looking a little weak or something? 'Cause that's as bad as Hitler.

It fascinates me, the interpretations laid over simple events and binary choices by these shrieking paragons of instability and paranoia on the right.

See, if Drudge had instead backed Gingrich and used it's position to publish negative articles about Romney so as to attempt to influence the upcoming primaries, imagine how this piece might have read:

"Drudge once again shows the wisdom and grasp of critical world events we have come to expect from such a respected and competent outlet. And once again we see all the forces of righteousness gathering to oppose the poseur, that RINO who will complete the socialism of America, destroying our markets, confiscating our guns and taking away all our liberty."

To these unstable idiots, there is no careful calculation, no considering of choices and making a decision, even one that they disagree with. Oh no. There is only sitting at the right hand of god and reagan or teaming up with the ghosts of lenin, bin laden and saddam hussein to destroy america because, well, STIMULUS...

And where ever Marie Jon' has gone to.

She was hoodwinked into writing for Christwire... that is, if she really exists. I think Marie Jon is just a stock headshot of some obscure South American model who became the Right's "Canadian Girlfriend".

It's surprising that they bother typing out the arguments instead of just "FUCK YEAH NEWT!!!!" None of it makes any sense when add it up: you're complaining that Drudge has no integrity because he's not pushing NEWT GINGRICH???

A lot of people really like Thomas Frank. I've read The Baffler but I've never picked up one of his books, the one most yakked about on the sites I read being What's the Matter with Kansas?

Right now Debt is really engaging in a kind of meta-economic sense, pursuing the invention of markets and then money as instruments of conquest rather than as handy things co-operative societies come up with on their own (which according to anthropological data they don't).
