If you read one thing as you watch the growing gasbag hysteria leading up to Clinton's speech tonight, read this great piece by Boehlert. It's all you need to know to keep this thing in perspective and understand why DFH's like us complain about fictional narratives.

Most of the bloviators who are covering this allegedly unprecedented rift were around when these earlier events happened. They are, as usual, passing around pre-masticated oppo talking points (when they aren't just making shit up.) There's no excuse for this.

Also, if you haven't seen this handy tool from Media Matters Action Network, check it out. Perhaps we should all send it to the press so they too can understand how the right manufactures scandals and then uses the media as their sales force.
