Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Live By The Oligarch, Die By The Oligarch

Rupert Murdoch is stepping down and his sons James and Lachlan (!) are taking over.

James Murdoch believes in anthropogenic climate change (and no one named Lachlan can be a bad person).

Ailes - the Dark Master of Rightist Media - could find himself in a fight he can't win.  I don't expect Faux News to turn into NPR, but getting rid of Ailes and ending their institutional climate change denial could begin to create some breathing room on the single most important issue facing the world today.
