Truth in The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune,
Barron’s and Bloomberg Businessweek
Except for unusual circumstances, you’ll never find a quotation on this web site from publications such as The Nation, The American Prospect, The Washington Monthly, Dollars & Sense, In These Times, or The Progressive Populist. Why?
Because they accurately reflect what is happening in our country and our world. Their staffs have a commitment to objectivity and fairness in reporting. Although they certainly have ideologies, their ideologies are the result of what they see, hear and report.
Conservative news media, on the other hand, see, hear and report as a result of their ideology.
That’s why a major strategy of right-wing think tanks is to label true professional journalists as the “biased liberal news media.” That’s about the only way they can defend their anti-middle-class positions on various issues. Conservatives certainly can’t attack the news media on the basis of objective facts and realistic historical precedent. All they can do is discredit them by character assassination.
Newt Gingrich, world class sanctimonious hypocrite, is a master at this demagoguery—as he clearly demonstrated in the nationally televised Republican debates.
Of course, the right-wing does the same thing to the people who quote these publications. Although there are sound reasons for people to publicly use the so-called liberal media as sources, there also is a need for someone to make the same points, but from ultra-conservative sources.
That’s what this web site is all about: Economic and social truths as the conservatives themselves know them to be, but publicly deny that they know them.
