Re: Public kept in the dark like mushrooms But you've found the precise problem.
The mainstream media doesn't want to live in this world, and I wouldn't consider Maher part of it on HBO.
The Sunday morning shows are inside the Beltway gabfests which spread nothing but consensus viewpoints which show the two parties don't differ at all.
And such a book would challenge the ridiculous notion of American exceptionalism, which basically just means if we say we're the best, we are, regardless of the actual dynamics.
