With a news cylce measured in seconds and minutes, not even hours, there are plenty of mainstream media mistakes, as I wrote yesterday, One lesson for mass killings: Don’t trust media reports for at least 24 hours.

Piers Morgan, for example, ran wild over the fact that the shooter used an AR-15,...

Remember when Joan Walsh of non-tokenist Salon.com kicked off an intra-progressive Twitter war after writing:

“I deeply resent people who insist that white progressives who criticize Obama are deluding themselves that they’re his ‘base,’ when his ‘base’ is actually not white progressives, but people of color.”
