In Fox News' first segment on "The Road to 2012," a majority of a bunch of white, chubby, middle-aged and entirely earnest GOP Iowa caucus voters insist that Obama Really Is A Muslim. Sigh.
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
