Open letter to Howard Dean
It is not just that the magic is gone (Elizabeth Warren is the current GREAT HOPE OF THE AMERICAN LEFT). There is a bigger problem. Running for office is not the way to take America back. We have to do something about the press. So here are some things you could do:
start a blogger fund to support bloggers, give us a business model
start a cable news station
start a radio network
work with low powered radio stations, the ones supporting local communities to develop funding for them
start a fund for livestreamers to support their work
we have to change the public discourse, and for that we need an alternative media. If you have read Scott Shane's Dismantling Utopia: How Information Ended the Soviet Union, you understand the role of the underground press in taking down communism.
We need an alternative press to take down the culture of corruption. Do for bloggers what Al Gore has done for renewable energy.
