“Liberals Are Ruining America. I Know Because I Am One.”


At The New York Times, Rumpus columnist Steve Almond argues that liberals are treating “for-profit propaganda as news” to the detriment of our political system.

Almond makes a strong case for ignoring the demagogues and instead seeking out those who want to find common ground.
