Summer of the Shill [Matt Taibbi / Rolling Stone]

A silver lining of this campaign, in a way, is that it seems it will finish off any remaining trust the public has in the MSM. (The part of this I consider a silver lining would be that our assessment of information quality would improve. This might hopefully make it harder to sell the public on bad policy, like the Iraq war. That the quality of the reporting is itself bad is of course a sad development and not something I am cheering.)
