The Liberal Media

Eric Alterman

We have no more hope today of saving the newspaper business than we do the telegraph business. But we can save the news.

As newspapers become increasingly irrelevant, is making them tax-exempt their last, best hope?

It's a sad comment on the state of the media that we have come to rely on funnymen to tell us the truth about our country.

Media watchdogs who slept through the Bush era now have little interest in examining just how many of our liberties were lost.

This just in: we won the Iraq War. And for the past eight years George W. Bush kept us safe.

The newspaper industry is falling off a cliff and with it may go much of our civil discourse.

Abe Foxman and Bill Kristol gutlessly attack Bill Moyers and David Grossman.

There's panic in the neocon playground as young liberal Jewish bloggers refuse to be silenced.
