We survey The One True Channel and the public schools: What will MSNBC be like in the coming years? How about Salon?
We think it’s important for liberals to badger the news orgs which are starting to define the liberal world. We’re going to try to be more polite about the work we see at such outposts.
But liberals need to fight for better performance from these entities. If you agree with us on that point, we will ask you to impoverish yourself as part of our fourth or fifth annual fund-raising drive.
After some fifteen years!
In the coming year, we will continue to critique the new liberal news organs. Those who want to see their mugs on TV will forget to perform this key function.
We will also continue to talk about the public schools. In part, we have a bit of minor expertise in this area, based on our dozen years in the Baltimore City schools (long ago). We even share the old school tie with Baltimore's Ta-Nehisi Coates! (Lemmel Junior High, different years.)
But good God! It’s stunning to see the way the liberal world has abandoned the topic of public schools. At one time, this was a major part of the liberal play list.
True no more! Liberal leaders don’t discuss the interests of low-income children. We don’t discuss their public schools. We don’t discuss or defend their teachers.
All in all, we stand aside and let the elites have their way in this area. We let the manufactured consent run wilroughshod over the land.
Tomorrow, we’re going to give you a short account of our history in this area. Why do we get so unpleasant about this topic? Tomorrow, we’ll deftly explain.
For today, we’re going to ask you to sell your car and transfer the proceeds to our analysts. They’re studying NAEP data as we speak.
We cant make them look up from their desks! To help them along, just click here.
