    I can’t identify the most fucked-up feature of the U.S. media, but here’s a candidate: Thom Hartmann’s TV program is being aired by a Russian TV channel.

    I’d weep, but my eyes ran out of tears Sunday night.

    Thom Hartmann on Russian TV?

    That actually tops the bad old days when Scott Ritter and Greg Palast were only on places like The Guardian or such. Oh, and Keith Olbermann.
