Roberts, a former economic advisor to Ronald Reagan, has a new article up on his new website about disinformation in the media. Well worth a read:

I've also heard other political analysts mention that Watergate was an attempt to discredit Nixon by the military industrial complex because he wanted to end the Vietnam war and open relations with China. No money in that. And also it is known that Nixon despised the ultra rich (as characterized in "Frost/Nixon").

The hidden right wingers are trying to resurrect Nixon? Honey, I'll tell you this, that man was worse than most will ever know, and I was only a freshman lobbyist! His people ended my career and nearly my life.

First Columbia took on their drug lords, now they're taking on their billionaires...why can't we?

America’s billionaires are driving this nation’s poverty epidemic. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

As we speak, working-class Americans are getting screwed over by policies that favor the wealthy elite, and leave everyone else in the dust. As a result, more and more Americans are living in poverty.
