Krugman totally nails it in this blog post.
The problem isn't that the Republicans are so nasty.
The problem is that the press won't report what's actually happening. They only know how to report on a certain kind of conflict.
The only thing we can do now to save ourselves is to reform the way we get our information, and it has to be done fast. No time to waste.
That's what this 16-minute podcast is about.
Hope you enjoy.
