74. Yes. The need for criticism from the left does not justify the spin and false narratives
of people like Cenk, Ted Rall, and Dave Sirota. They didn't help pass a progressive agenda. They didn't help raise the profile of progressive issues. They did nothing but act as speed bumps to change, just as much as Fox News did.

We needed a progressive echo chamber to reinforce progressive words and actions taken by Obama. That should include accurate criticism but it also needs to include praise for the positive. Instead, we got a group of left cannibals determined to eat their own.
