The Chairman... continued

Excellent 'Thing Again' column by Eric Alterman regarding recent exposes (including the Rolling Stone piece I referenced below) on "The Chairman" - Roger Ailes -

"Fox: Crazy Like... Ailes"

“Fox is something new—something for which we do not yet have a word. It provides almost no actual journalism. Instead it gives ideological guidance to the Republican Party and millions of its supporters, attacking its opponents and keeping its supporters in line. And it does so at a hefty profit, thereby turning itself into the political equivalent of a perpetual motion machine.”
