Digby writes about it… superbly, as always… in Al Jazeera.
As Bryan of Why Now? notes, it’s getting to the point at which you have to turn to international sources to read the news. I may be old, but that means I can remember a time when that was not the case, when (e.g.) the now despicable Washington Post actually supported reporters who discovered what Richard Nixon was really up to. Not any more. Want articles on the militarization of the police in America? Don’t bother turning to WaPo. Want a reasonable perspective on #Occupy? Try the Guardian, not any of the California or New York newspapers. Our press has changed… almost entirely for the worse.
