Editor’s Note: Instead of recoiling instinctively at any mention of progressives or “the left,” it’s worthwhile to take a moment and listen to what is being said on this segment of The Jimmy Dore Show. He uses a recent article by Matt Taibbi to illustrate the key points that differentiate adhering to principles versus the misguided adherence to political outcomes. This is crucial to understand as it is becoming obvious that the entire concept of media and journalism is being upended as we engage in distractions from the core issue: all media that is in any way critical of establishment ideology is being targeted. If we celebrate the demise of any voice we disagree with, we are really celebrating the demise of own own right to choose the voices we support or reject.
Although Dore makes some excellent points, we would recommend that you also view James Corbett’s recent video “Problem Reaction Solution: Internet Censorship Edition” which offers a far better long-term solution to the problem of censorship and how each of us can participate right now to help restore the free market of ideas.
