Talking Back To Murdoch

Recently, a producer for FOX News stepped into a Dunkin' Donuts in Vermont, intent on doing a hit piece on the state. One of the people he wound up talking to happened to be a diarist for DailyKos. Read the whole sordid story here.

Nice story — I totally missed this one.
It's lovely.

Ten years ago, the diarist would have had a limited means of redress. Maybe he could have got Salon.com or Slate.com to tell his story, but that would have been about it.

Now, it's on the web's biggest political site.
What's more, the chances of a FAUX News zampolit unknowingly running into someone who has the ability to monkeywrench a smear increase with each passing day, and all the screeching and feces-flinging of wingnuts recedes into deserved oblivion.
