Media Matters! is the story of truth titans David Brock and Eric Boehlert, the big boys at Media Matters for America. They’re not happy with the right-wing New York Times and its mean, immoral coverage of Hillary Clinton, who has never done anything wrong. They have dedicated their lives to exposing this conspiracy. The dialogue in these comics consist (almost) entirely of direct quotes from the heroes themselves. For more comics, see here.
Frankly, I’m a little disappointed in Donald Trump. I mean, it’s hard to fault a guy for modesty, but this is politics. You’ve gotta be in it to win it, go for the gold, etc. When someone endorses your vision of human flourishing, you can’t go all shrinking violet on the American people. So I really wish the current frontrunner would rear that bashful head of his and remind the world—and his fellow Republican presidential candidates—of the plaudits he’s just received from a Top Global Thinker in an expensive newspaper.
The New York Times headline over the weekend was reassuring: “U.S. Decides to Retaliate Against China’s Hacking.” But check out the fine print.
