Until I'm Blue in the Face

When time spent emoting poorly reaches 50.1% and time spent reasoning rationally is demoted to 49.9%, nothing good can follow:
The approach of outfits such as MoveOn.org is so juvenile it's laughable. Imagine if every political organization created litmus tests for news organizations before agreeing to appear on their programming. Republicans would have boycotted PBS, CBS, NBC, ABC, National Public Radio and The Associated Press decades ago.

This hyperventilation results from the fact that far-left Democrats have no comparable media outlet, nor any widespread national appeal, for their radical views in favor of heavy-handed regulation, wealth redistribution, diplomatic capitulation and economic protectionism. So they attack their rivals' messenger with a reckless barrage of rhetoric that cuts down their own allies with friendly fire.
As Don Surber points out, the Democrats have just allowed the weirdest among them to take all their best and brightest off the most-watched cable news network in the nation. How's that for winnnig strategy?
