"Raw Story is a progressive news site that focuses on stories often ignored in the mainstream media. While giving coverage to the big stories of the day, we also bring our readers' attention to policy, politics, legal and human rights stories that get ignored in an infotainment culture driven solely by pageviews.

"Founded in 2004, Raw Story reaches 9 million unique readers per month and serves more than 30 million pageviews."

This little "about Raw Story" info says that our "infotainment culture" is interested in stories "driven solely by pageviews." Isn't it funny that their pageview amount is the last info bit one reads about them?

When you read an editorial in your local newspaper, your natural assumption is that it expresses the views of that paper’s staff and reflects local concerns. This, however, does not appear to be the case with the many small-town papers owned by Ogden Newspapers, Inc.

Thanks to Muriel Kane of The Raw Story for pointing out that the Minot Daily News is part of a string of newspapers who astroturfs its unsigned ‘right-wing’ editorials.

For all her secret meetings and manipulations Hillary Clinton will be awarded either the Presidency or lifetime membership to the Supreme Court of the USA. Mark my words!!

But the documents also showed the growing concerns among Clinton's fellow Democrats in Congress. Lawmakers, it said, "going to their home districts for the August break are petrified about having difficult health care reform issues/questions thrown at them."

Friday's documents release included memos related to the former president Clinton's ill-fated health care reform proposal in 1993 and 1994, a plan that failed to win support in Congress and turned into a rallying cry for Republicans in the 1994 midterm elections. As first lady, Hillary Clinton chaired her husband's health care task force, largely meeting in secret to develop a plan to provide universal health insurance coverage.

White House aides expressed initial optimism about her ability to help craft and enact a major overhaul of U.S. health care.

"The first lady's months of meetings with the Congress has produced a significant amount of trust and confidence by the members in her ability to help produce a viable health reform legislative product with the president," said an undated and unsigned document, which was cataloged with others from April 1993. The document urged quick action, warning that enthusiasm for health reform "will fade over time."

As one who is familiar with both Democrat and Republican platforms, I say "baloney with garlic" to that rollback to the 19th or 20th century thingy.

I agree that actions speak louder than words. Democrats' actions have not been that conservative. "Moving backwards" is a matter of perspective, isn't it? Is "progressive" always good? Also a matter of perspective.

Where is the commenter "red neck"? You all remember, the guy with the 300% increase tale that turned out to be just that: a tale, a story made up from whole cloth.

If he can prove what he says is true, I'll promise to make up the difference myself.

Where oh where did "red neck" go?

Maybe you should read stories on how Obamacare has helped.

I can see angeR's point more clearly every time HAetc posts.

Notice that it's "right wing conservative ideology" that is poisoning everything that REAL liberals want to do.

I really find it hard to believe that elected Democrats would consider themselves ideologically linked with right wing conservatives.

billgrr's hyperbole is in fine form today.

What about that present-day war on women, as related by Kathleen Willey yesterday?

Given my well documented collection of factual racist quotes from Mr. Nugent I think I made my point rather well. You want civil discourse, you and your fellow grand wizards better start leading by example.

Nope, given my point was less about Ted and more about phony outrage from the left, I think I made my point rather well. You want civil discourse, you and your leftist gods better start leading by example.

"My only point, which again is ABSOLUTE FACT, is that it is a pro-corporate, pro-conservative, anti-liberal law and it was the result of a bunch of gutless CONSERVATIVE CORPORATE Democrats."

Call them what you want Mr. Haaas, but they weren't Republicans, and they sure weren't conservatives. Saying something an absolute fact doesn't make it a fact, even if you use CAPITAL LETTERS

You are right that they were corporate shills, but you can't run

Speaking of Nancy Pelosi, it occurs that she might be suffering the ill effects of job-lock. She's had a seat in the House since 1993, and I understand that she might be hesitant to give up that seat for fear of losing the many perks and benefits associated with her job as a member of the Congress. I think we - or more accurately, the voters in her district - owe it to her, for her many dedicated years of public service, to relieve her of those responsibilities. She needs to be free to experience the joys of writing poetry, practicing Tai Chi in the park, and following all of her passions - at least those that don't involve destroying the country.

The failure of Obamacare will be blamed on those obstructionist Republicans (because they have been oh so successful in their bid to block, defund or otherwise derail Obamacare).

When it becomes painfully obvious that the ACA was doomed to failure from its inception, Democrats will abandon any claim or credit for its implementation, because they wanted single payer all along. It was those hateful Republicans that forced them to ram through this legislation so we could find out what was in it.

Pay no attention to the fact that not a SINGLE Republican in either house voted for it - not even the corporatist establishment Rinos. Don't let the facts get in the way.
