I’ve done tons of CBS blogging below, but make no mistake: I’m still steamed about the Armstrong Williams/Department of Education payola mess. Williams’ apology is terribly disingenuous.

The media crazy train is standing room only. As the GOP and the Right have gotten better and better at telling their stories and pushing back against progressive narratives, the gate-keepers who once held a monopoly on controlling the airwaves and printing presses have become more than unhinged.
