The counter-revolution has been televised
From John Perry Barlow:
Politics as usual was working like God’s wristwatch in Iowa, where the RNC and various Republican PAC’s outspent many of the Democratic candidates on negative TV ads aimed exclusively at Dean. But more damaging, in my opinion, was the remarkably open bias that the traditional media seemed to display against Howard Dean in their presentation of the news itself. I don’t watch much television, but what little I’ve seen in the last month indicated to me that Dean was being systematically slimed.
