Most of the mainstream media seems to be merely amused by the flaming rhetoric being spewed by those who are determined to defeat the efforts to reform our broken health care system. Outright lies are being promoted by high-profile Republican politicians, pundits, and leaders — and no one is calling them on it. People are waving swastikas and images of Obama-as-Hitler, and the press makes no mention of it? The best explanation of who is behind this Republican effort to derail change by scaring senior citizens and others is given by (of course) Rachel Maddow.

I also recommend a visit over to the blog BAGNewsNotes, specifically the post on media coverage of the people who are disrupting the town hall discussion about health care reform, Wingers “Speaking Out”.
