Quote of the day

"Why haven't America's old-school news organizations blown the whistle on Roger Ailes, chief of Fox News, for using the network to conduct a propaganda campaign against the Obama administration -- a campaign without precedent in our modern political history?" - Howell Raines

That Raines raised this question in the pages of the Washington Post is a big deal, as this sort of criticism - as obvious and factual as it is - is usually confined to blogs which lack the audience and influence of the Post.
