They DO plan, don’t they.

The GOP and its allies. They plan, longterm and short term. Even if they improvise they agree on where they’re going with it.

Randi Rhodes today played an Edward R Murrow interview with Harry Truman, warning that the Republican party had–this was in 1957–become the party of “special interests” and everything they do is for those special interests. So we see this continuity now, with the party of special interest–and that takes planning.

They planned Reagan, his administration and his deregulation, and all that went with it. They planned how they would take down Clinton and Obama–so they hoped–and how they would exploit Trump. They planned their takeover of talk radio, that is well known. They plan their influence on media. Fox News was planned. Sinclair media was planned. OAN was at least supported by the planners. Special Interests and their puppets planned their use of social media. Not long ago, they took over Newsweek Magazine, formerly a liberal mag. They edged the New York Times more to the right somehow. They are doing the same with The Washington Post.

They are planning, probably, to take over all news sources.
