Free Ride book
Free Ride: John McCain and the Media by David Brock and Paul Waldman documents how the media have abandoned their post as honest arbiters in coverage of their friend, John McCain. They show how the media has enabled McCain's rise from the Keating Five scandal to the underdog hero of the 2000 primaries to his roller-coaster run for the 2008 nomination.

Fair and balanced my ass book
Fair and Balanced, My Ass! is a wide-ranging, irreverent, and humorous look at America's number-one cable news network. It examines Fox's phony patriotism and piety, its dishonest crusades, its well-defined agenda, and ratings-driven techniques. The authors deliver a hearty slap down to the jewels in the Murdoch crown, including Bill O'Reilly, Hannity and Colmes, Fox and Friends, and more.

Watchdogs of Democracy book
In Watchdogs of Democracy, Veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas offers a cogent, bracing assessment of the deteriorating state of journalistic ethics. She claims that the Bush-2 White House has pioneered "methods that steer message management into outright government propaganda." And never before have Washington reporters behaved like lapdogs rather than watchdogs, unwilling to ask obvious questions and demand honest answers.

Why Ryan Quit
Besides Going Home and Starving His Granny, That Is

by Bryan Zepp Jamieson

April 11, 2018

Ryanís long-rumored retirement was announced today, surprising a few people but shocking nobody. Rumors that he was going to quit had been swirling since the tax bill was passed.

Everyone is assuming that he quit because of the pending electoral catastrophe the Republican are facing, and heís planning on getting a grotesquely overpaid position with one of the more rapacious corporations and watching from a sunny dacha somewhere as his former country collapses like a World Trade Tower. Given his general Randroid viciousness, thatís not a bad guess.

But it seems to me that heís playing a longer game. Iím guessing he still wants to run America by his own Randian priniciples, and is angling toward doing that.

Resigning by November divorces him from his own tax bill, and the fantastic damage it will do. Trump, in his narcissistic mania, was more than happy to take credit for it. Ryan has worked his heart out to make Ryanís life-long plan to turn America into a thin scum of John Galts heaving atop a sea of impoverished and dispossed peons. He knows people will be in a murderous rage once they see the results, and heíll be more than happy to blame Trump and attack him for the vast deficits that heíll claim are why Americans are impoverished.

If that strikes you as fantastically cynical and self-serving, then you just donít know Republicans.

Ryan might spend the last six months before the election leading the impeachment of Donald Trump. There is an electoral tidal wave coming, and Ryan is smart enough to know that if he positions himself as ďa mainstream RepublicanĒ who is trying to undo the damage Trump has done, he might improve his standing with the public, along with that of his party, by destroying the monster he helped to create, and pretending to fight the economic ruin he devoted his whole life to creating.

The reason this might not work? Trump, who is far too erratic and volatile, and has far too much power he can misuse. He might destroy everyoneís plans, even those of his fellow sociopaths.
