There’s so much wrong with the democracy experiment at the moment. But is good that a few journalists are seeing the issues that must be dealt with.
For instance the issue of lies by those manipulating the population to back them – and then to move the responsibility onto others for the trouble they cause.
The other issue is that the right/neocon or whoever they are now resort to blatant lies to get people support. Their opposition tries to win the arguments on an evidence based/truthful approach but this is no longer good enough to gather the voters’ support. This issue has to be dealt with by the progressive sides of politics if the right/conservatives are ever to be put back in their place.
