1. In the September 2004 Harper's Magazine: Lewis H. Lapham "Tentacles of Rage
The Republican propaganda mill, a brief history." Unfortunately, it's not available online. It discusses the hard right's attempt to subvert decency, journalistic integrity, and modern civilization. Of course, it has the usual suspects.
2. Attack Poodles and Other Media Mutants : The Looting of the News in a Time of Terror by James Wolcott. Witty--and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny--but scary.
