Let’s Talk Clinton: Tony Kushner


. . . next luminary . . .

I’m feeling enormously discouraged right now because after having elected this guy, swallowing hard, we’re faced with fighting for the death penalty. Clinton won because he sounded like a progressive candidate. He was promising social program money for jobs and schools, universal health care, and surrounding himself at first with people on the left, and then just stopped listening to them.

I’m not giving up on him. He can make a speech. Unlike Carter. He’s as good as Reagan, which is saying a lot. He’s a talented orator , andaif he can get his shit together and point his compass leftathe forty percent of this nation’s virtually disenfranchised can be galvanized with a reasonable agenda.

IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEDIA BIAS

We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
