Dog Canyon Blogger Nails Rick Perry (and the Texas Press)

Well worth the time it takes to read, this refutation of Perry’s claim that the recent health insurance reform is “socialism,” not least because The Socialist Party USA opposed its dedication to preserving the market-driven, profiteering “health insurance industry.”

    The problem with the Texas press is the same as everywhere else. Mainstream media no longer provide informed, intelligent and objective analysis. Compared to detailed reporting and thoughtful journalism, it is faster and cheaper to just transcribe press releases.

    Big Media’s Big Business owners have all adopted a model based on sensationalism, using scare headlines and conflict-driven sound-bites to try and attract viewers. In this model “Dog Bites Man” and “Rick Perry Lies” are both expected, everyday happenings, and therefore not newsworthy.

    What this country needs is a good hometown newspaper. In every town.

    Oh, and shooting down the satellites carrying the daily spew from FOX and RUSH wouldn’t hurt either.
