20. Sirota's piece on the exchanges at Huffpo today. Telling it like it is.

"Unfortunately, Stossel uses both his perch at ABC News and the conservative movement's right-wing apparatus to promote these kinds of lies. He gets awards from right-wing groups, and is given a platform at corporate-funded, fringe-right-wing groups like Townhall.com and the Cato Institute. He is, in short, a good exmaple of why I wrote Hostile Takeover - because we have to start fighting back frontally against these professional pathological liars, and the first way to start fighting back is to start shoving the facts in their faces."

Sirota: "it's the cold, hard fact, gleaned from simple arithmatic".

And he's got the charts and graphs to prove he's right.

The party plutocracy could really use the weaponry of this face and voice on our behalf in the media somewhere every single night, but I don't see that happening. They can't control his message.
