The privately owned media has, by and large, failed its mandate. Seeing a lucrative demand for lies, they're working to capture it.
Make public the list of people who have betrayed the public trust, how they betrayed the public trust, and what the result was.

If you must bring them on, lead with those facts, then state the reason you're platforming them anyway. Otherwise you're laundering lies.
"My guest today is Henry Kissinger, who worked as Secretary of State for disgraced former President Nixon, for whom he ran a secret bombing campaign in Cambodia that was both unconstitutional and a war crime, and murdered hundreds of thousands of civilians. Mr. Kissinger, hello."
"Mr. Kissinger, we're having you on today because you have some opinions about Syrian President Assad, and we want the perspective of somebody who has also murdered untold thousands of people."

"A reminder: Mr. Kissenger is a known and unrepentant liar. Sir, my first question...
“My guest today is Matt Schlapp, who is even worse than his name might suggest. Matt has been a prominent agent of lies and misinformation during the Trump regime. We’re having him on to examine his lies clinically, and to make fun of him. Good morning, Schlapp.”
You might say, "But if they knew they'd face such an accurate and devastating framing of themselves and their past offenses, why would known liars agree to make any appearances? They'd stop going on the air altogether!"

Republicans don't have a crisis with identity. They have an unshakeable identity built around white supremacist grievance.

They have a crisis with reality. They refuse to live in it. Anybody who tries gets censured and shunned, threatened and expunged.
One of our two major political parties is openly proudly fascist. They are fascist in the only way fascists can be fascist, which is happily and angrily at the same time. Happily because they've found their purpose. Angrily because reality keeps intruding.

It's a dire problem.
I'm aware they think they're good people.

In fact, fascists always think they're good people—not just good people, but the best and greatest people. This on the way to believing that only they are people.

That's where they are. Ask them; they'll tell you.

American Fascists.

This is wild and frequently hilarious stuff, and a major embarrassment, but the life the hotel staff describes is basically life in a totalitarian regime, with praise for the Dear Leader a requirement just for basic survival.

It's the Republican vision.…
I mean just look at this shit.

And ask: what is the difference between a GOP member of Congress and a Trump hotel staffer, other than the fact that the GOP MoC has won the victory over himself, and truly loves Big Blather? Anyone who wasn’t a Trump fan quickly learned that putting
I ponder the massive popularity among Republicans for this spoiled toddler of a pig-president, demanding lavish ceaseless praise.

Then I ponder the anti-"woke" and anti-"cancel culture" streams of conservative thought, that amount to a desire to never be corrected.

Same energy.

As much as leftists hate to hear it, there are no systems better than unregulated capitalism, which is why Texans are getting $20,000 electricity bills but no electricity during a deadly freeze.…
The evidence is incontrovertible: our capitalist system, as currently structured, exists not to create wealth but to siphon it away. The proof is the way disaster acts as a trigger, not to help people, but to immediately capture as much of the remaining wealth as possible.
The greater the disaster, the more immediately and aggressively the system acts to capture wealth away from the people being harmed by the disaster.

Almost feels like it is expecting disaster and has already planned for it.

I'd say we might want to change such a system.

Imagine if Christians actually had to live according to their Bibles.
Imagine if Christians actually sacrificed themselves for the good of those they considered their enemies, with no thought of any recompense or reward, but only to honor the essential humanity of all people.
Imagine if Christians sold all their possessions and gave it to the poor.

Imagine if they relentlessly stood up for the widow, the orphan, and the foreigner.

Imagine if they worshipped a God whose response to political power was to reject it.

Or cancelled all debt owed them?

Republicans really are just running on a platform of “we will kill all of you for money” and millions of people love it, because they think “all of you” doesn’t include them, and they think they’ll get a cut.
It's not just ghouls like Perry and pretty much every Republican, it's the people who keep voting for them even when they very clearly say, "what we propose is that you die for us, so we can go on not providing basic governance, so you can die more."
Hard to escape the conclusion that Perry is right; that freezing to death in your house alone is literally better to Republican voters than having to endure the psychological torment of acknowledging that we live in a shared society.
