Alex Pareene: If Good Reporting Was in Any Way Useful to Conservatives, They’d Already Be Doing It
Some great analysis of conservative media from Alex Pareene (@pareene) at Splinter News.
The very, very well-funded conservative movement has shown a willingness to throw donor money at anything that they think might help it to win and maintain power. They have trampled over longstanding political norms, funded dirty tricksters and ratfuckers, and purchased local television stations across the country and forced them to air pro-Trump propaganda. They throw money at winning college campus elections! If anyone on the right believed good journalism would help the right in any way, they’d be funding it.
