Rachel Maddow on Yet Another Right Wing Fake Outrage
Would you believe that when I helped launch Pajamas Media, one of the goals was to create a site that would transcend left-right politics, promote environmentalism and science, and allow free discussion of ideas without ideological blinders?
I know, it’s almost impossible to believe, if you look at the pure right wing propaganda that PJ Media constantly churns out these days. The site has turned into World Net Daily Lite — another anti-science, anti-Obama mouthpiece for the Tea Party base, promoting conspiracy theories, climate change denial, and even creationism, and giving a voice to some of the worst liars and racists of the right, people like Robert Stacy McCain.
It’s disappointing to see it, but apparently the money was better on the loony side.
Rachel Maddow highlights one of the totally ridiculous fake outrages that erupted this week, and sure enough, PJ Media was right there helping push it out to the far right base, along with Jim “Dim” Hoft and the rest of the hate-obsessed wingnut blogosphere. Sad.
