Subject: letter

Rob Levine thinks it is terrible that an organization dedicated to promoting conservative ideas attracts conservative members, conservative speakers and conservative money, and even worse, provides information helpful to conservative candidates ("'American Experiment' gets a free ride from uncritical media" Star Tribune, 7/30).

It isn't enough that liberals have a near monopoly on all other sources of information, oh no! The blackout of opposing arguments must be complete and can be accomplished without even answering them. All you have to do is find some way to claim that their airing is intrinsically illegitimate.
