It’s 2011, And Jane Hamsher Is Still Ridiculous

Jane Hamsher is using her e-mail list right now to raise money for some sort of nebulous defense of Bradley Manning based on her version of a run-in with the security on a military base. The problem is, Hamsher is misleading about what actually happened in order to make things appear far more sinister than they are.

I’m no fan of the right wing’s hucksterism, but its worth calling it out when it appears on what is – theoretically – the left as well.
