This is why our political process has been so broken and corrupt. The worst
elements of what has become the pro-Bush right wing have been shaping and
driving how national journalists view events, the stories they cover, and the
narratives they disseminate.
What kind of government and political system -- what
kind of country -- is going to arise from a political landscape shaped by the
likes of Rush Limbaugh, Matt Drudge, Sean Hannity, Fox News, Michelle Malkin,
and their similar right-wing appendages in talk radio, print and the
blogosphere? Allowing those elements to dominate our political debates and drive
media coverage guarantees a decrepit, rotted, and deeply corrupt country. That
is just a basic matter of cause and effect.
