Wow. That was very thoughtful by Frum. And very true.

And yes, I know what you mean about the talk points. I have a hard time imagining it as centralized given my aversion to anything that feels conspiracy-like. But I think that they listen to each other and amplify what resonates already.

That said, I wouldn’t be shocked if there were more organization among some political writers and news readers than I care to believe is happening.

re: #2 JRCMYP

There has to be some form of behind the scene directions going on for these right wingers - there is no way so many different talk show hosts all have shows are about the same thing with almost exactly the same talking points all day long.

I think the best expose on this was from David Brock’s The Republican Noise Machine : Right-Wing Media and How It Corrupts Democracy [Hardcover]

I know that Charles has been down on Frum at times, but I like having him in my Twitter feed. I would like having any sane Republican in my Twitter feed, because I don’t like getting only one side, and I’m not a ‘liberal’ anyway. But it’s hard to find Republicansj (or non-‘Republican’ moderate/centrist/non-‘liberals’) these days that come across as being sane, so I’m left with…Frum and Andrew Sullivan? David Brooks or George Will once in awhile, I suppose, though it’s never seemed worth it to keep up with either.

Fuck, do I miss Christopher Hitchens.

I agree that Breitbart wasn’t necessarily partisan, much like pundits should be viewed as entertainment, and people get it wrong. But if I thought dimly of Michael Moore at times…this guy was far, far worse.

Yuk.

That may be true. I don’t pay enough attention on a daily basis to know.

He didn’t call all the GOP Nazi’s, he only implied most of them are. I say to him good luck putting the Republican train back on course. It has already run over the body tied to the tracks, broke through the bridge out sign and the engineer seems to have mouthful of teabags and the throttle wide open to crazy town.
