My new favorite blog is Monitoreo Ciudadano. The decent folks there are putting up a nice little stock of videos, documenting the use of government media – from good’ol VTV to the unwatchable ANTV – for partisan purposes.
It’s good to put things in perspective, just to get a sense of the scale of abuse we’re talking about. Imagine if the Obama administration were to use C-Span to trash the Tea Party in ways that would make Keith Olbermann blush. That’s what VTV and ANTV do, day in and day out.
For example, take a look at this ditty from ANTV.
How very institutional of them.
