I'm slowly embarking on an early fundraising drive for my new project, the Center for Accountability Journalism and its website, FearlessMedia.org. The goal is to spur a revival of core journalistic values, starting with the premise that our job is to seek the truth, and hold people accountable for their lies -- rather than simply present conflicting he-said/she-said arguments and leave our readers confused and under-informed. If you're interested, it's now accepting charitable donations!

Had John Kiriakou actually engaged in torture, he wouldn’t be in any trouble at all — he never even would have been investigated. But because he talked about torture with reporters, he’s going to prison.

Anybody got a spare ticket to the screening? ;-)

Some mailers using peer pressure to mobilize voters are hitting too close to home for some recipients

Hey read this!
The important thing about this vote to anyone paying any attention at all was the subtext -- what it really meant. But the coverage was stenographic and context-deficient.

My interview with Tom Mann and Norm Ornstein -- and my coda to the 2012 elections.

Thank you!

FactCheck.org did a good job of keeping up with the major 'mistruths.' I'd check it almost every day during election season. 

Journalists have to take it upon themselves to point this out, and it's easier for those untied to corporate structure to do so. That said, none of it matters unless the electorate demands it. 

This can't be shared enough. Good work.

A key underlying promise is that he can win over Republicans. Good luck with that.

If it doesn't turn out to be real this time, it's officially a trope.

Suppress the vote early and often, apparently.
