Would You Like A Napkin?
by Your Diva, Robin Pastorio-Newman

It is fashionable at this most modern moment to refuse to acknowledge when the point has been made. It is the height of good taste to brush aside logic and reasonable thinking in favor of the witless and extravagantly scandalous – but let us be so bold.
 
Digby’s Hullabaloo cites a New York Times article about the administration’s long-time practice of packaging soft stories and placing them unattributed with legitimate news agencies. A lot of money is changing hands specifically to confuse us. Your Darling, Your Diva, Your One True Love is no investigative journalist, and she could never have put together this careful report. It raises an important point: what is the source of your news or for that matter your entertainment? Does what you read in the newspaper bear the weight of simple rational exploration? Does the music on the radio sound important to you, or is it the same government cheese bearing a different stamp?
