The true new McCarthyism

Ted Rall, who is to the left of Left, reveals today’s dirty little secret:

It feels a little weird to write this, like I’m telling tales out of school and ratting out the Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy. But it’s true: there’s less room for a leftie during the Age of Obama than there was under Bush.

I didn’t realize how besotted progressives were by Mr. Hopey Changey.

I have to admit that I’ve never found Rall amusing, because he’s a Jon Stewart type — vicious, but not witty. I give him big credit, though, for being brave enough here to state the truth about the Obama worship that is stifling the free flow of information.

One of the things I frequently remind people who know (and hate) that I’m a conservative is that I do not want to do away with the old media.  I simply want it to be honest about its prejudices and to engage forthrightly with conservatives.  Right now, the old media uses its still considerable power to marginalize them and, if possible, silence conservative voices.
