I have been checking the alternative sites pretty often lately, since although they are fronts like the mainstream, some information trickles through there. They are written and produced to misdirect the partially informed, rather than the utterly uninformed, so they have to admit some partial truths as a nod to their audience. The mainstream can just sell night as day, with no connection to reality at all, but the alternative media has to be a bit more clever, since their audience is a bit more clever. Anyway, I ran across a funny lead at Infowars today. Jones always has a poll in the sidebar, to make you feel involved, and this week it is a poll asking you who you think is in charge of the country right now.
