A great news web site
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 03:33 PM by scottcsmith
Lots of grassroots efforts out on the Web to present news from a progressive point of view. I wanted to recommend one, OpEdNews, that is a great source of information. Not only that, but they're running one of my columns! Check out the site if you get a chance. A lot of these progressive news sites are labors of love, usually ran by one or two people, but provide a great service by offering an alternative to corporate media.

George Bush and the Rise of Christian Fascism

,snip>
The problem comes down to this: Democrats, liberals, and social progressives have simply not grasped how afraid, insecure and how deeply in despair the populace is. They keep speaking as if objective analysis and idealistic vision can win the day. What Bush and Rove, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Wolfowitz and Pearls, Abrams and Bolton, DeLay and Rice etc, have clearly understood is that truth is subjectivity. Unfortunately, the inner person of America today is a hollowed out consumer who lacks the will power, stamina and imagination to do anything more than be overwhelmed. Therefore, a politics of crisis, a politics of fear will keep us locked into a state of conformity.

2. I enjoy that site
It has many good articles. Will go and check on yours.

There is another one out there I found recently called "The Blogging of the President" which has some very interesting opinion articles.
