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.

GOP Tax Myth & Junk Economics

If there's one thing all Republican politicians are really good at, it's straight-up lying through their teeth about how their tax cuts for the rich are actually tax cuts for the middle-class.

Reagan did it, George W. Bush did it, and now that he's officially unveiled his own so-called tax reform plan, Donald Trump is doing it, too.
