Progressives cheered when it was announced Wednesday that Glenn Beck would be “transitioning” off his Fox News show. Beck’s not gone for good, of course, but his daily screeds against the likes of Van Jones and Frances Fox Piven will be somewhat more limited — perhaps to radio.
That news aside, though, it’s been a rough year in media. NPR and PBS are under attack, newspapers and magazines are still struggling to make ends meet, and with a new war, hundreds of anti-woman, anti-union, anti-immigrant bills popping up around the country, the progressive independent media is stretched thin as a pancake.
