Alan Grayson Goes After Politico
Alan Grayson Goes After Politico

What do Boeing, AT&T, Americas Natural Gas Alliance, CTIA, McDonalds, and Goldman Sachs have in common?

They are all advertisers in Fridays issue of the Politico, the insider political magazine that controls much of the dialogue in Washington, DC. And thats just one days issue. In fact, for the last year, the back page of the Politico has been occupied by a full-page Goldman Sachs advertisement. Thats a direct revenue flow of thousands of dollars from Goldman Sachs to the magazine most politicians in DC rely on for political gossip.

.............

Interestingly enough, here are the last six headlines from the Politico on me.

Dems accused of tea party tampering
GOP foe sues Grayson over DVD
Kelly: Grayson may want troops to die
Whos not on the DCCC list
The Age of Rage
No repeat blockbuster for Grayson

Every single headline is meant to damage me, to gin up pseudo-scandals or keep them going. We recognize this. Its what the media did to Bill Clinton, to Barack Obama, to Al Gore, to Michael Moore, and really, to anyone who is either a Democrat or puts forward the concept that America should be run for the benefit of the people and not the corporations.

2. Good, and don't link to that rag either
I blocked it on my computer and here at work through the gateway so the Pukes can't read it.

3. go get 'em
politico is the new ABC "note". It was The Note that shaped Washington conversation for the Clinton and Bush administrations, nannying reporters into following its narrative lead.

Politico has been trouble from day one, and even liberal news readers aided its rise as a mouth organ.
