Bruce Schimmel

On Armageddon:

Bruce is right that a clean press is as necessary to a healthy politics as clean air is to public health. Ronald Reagan's gratuitous destruction of Equal Time was the fatal final step towards the monetization of our politics.

Money now is the only "free" speech. Big Money has led to the squalid Rushification of our political discourse. I listen daily to the World Service of the BBC and could foresee not missing American print media.
