Reporters: Is Shilling for the Right Really a Good Idea?

-- by Dave Johnson

Shorter Stirling Newberry: Reporters, the people you are helping to consolidate absolute power want to do away with you when they get it.

Reporters: Is Shilling for the Right Really a Good Idea?

Why should it be a worse idea for them than it is for any very, very highly compensated corporate careerist?

The vast majority of people believe (and who am I to argue with them?) that once they've got their whatever-number-tips-their-personal-scale zillion dollars, bugger all. They live in their real and metaphorical gated communities, sure that the shit-covered peasants will never arrive at those gates with machetes. I do so hope they're wrong about that last part, but I fear they are right. There's never a fucking French Revolution around when you need one.

Dave, slightly OT, but here's an article you linked to back then - Iraq: In all but name, the war's on. Prescient, huh?
