Media Talk: Conscripts for the 1%

Left doesn't accept the Right, right?

Talking about the media is a thorny issue, yet it must be done to protect our democracy. Both John Dewey and Ben Franklin, great thinkers if not great men, believe that community dialogue is an integral part of developing a healthily informed society.

Since the Russian special operations commenced on February 24, 2022, the […]
