American conservatism has long been poisoned by its maliciously partisan media. As Alex Pareene has written, what started as a way to squeeze a few bucks out of trusting retirees with gold scams and quack medicine gradually metastasized into a hermetically sealed propaganda dungeon for virtually the entire Republican Party. Where Republican elites used to cynically whip up their base with lies and feverish hyperbole, now people driven completely loopy by that same propaganda include the president and most of the majority party in Congress.

Unfortunately, the same thing is now starting to happen with liberals.
