Will Bunch is author of the new "Tear Down This Myth: How the Reagan Legacy Has Distorted Our Politics and Haunts Our Future", published by Free Press, which examines the calculated effort by the modern right wing to canonize the 40th president, and how that's harmed America on everything from runaway debt to failed energy policies to unchecked greed on Wall Street. He is senior writer for the Philadelphia Daily News and author of its popular blog, Attytood.

Will has won numerous journalism awards, including a share of the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for spot news reporting when he worked for New York Newsday. His articles have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Mother Jones, American Prospect, American Journalism Review and elsewhere, and he is author of one other book: Jukebox America: Down Back Streets and Blue Highways in Search of the Country's Greatest Jukebox.

A Pennsylvanian's Guide to the Rick Santorum You Don't Know The real Rick Santorum is indeed a frothy mixture -- of self-interest, loose ethical standards, and careerism in a career that's been largely devoted not so much to the social causes about which he makes headlines as looking out for the interests of big corporations and the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans.

The Accidental Truth-Teller: Glenn Beck, the Tea Party and Race The media needs to re-ground itself in the fact that on the playing field of social movements, Occupy Wall Street, despite its flaws, is rooted in a reality of billionaire-bought economic injustice, while the Tea Party is based heavily on an emotion.

October 1, 2011: The Day The Future Crossed A Bridge Here's what the elites don't get. The Occupy protests aren't even about a political demand or agenda in a conventional inside-the-Beltway sense. The occupation itself is the message. Millions of long-ignored Americans simply want to be seen and heard, and to reclaim the public square that has systematically been taken away from us.

The Tea Party, Right-Wing Media and the Dog That Didn't Bark Now comes Roger Ailes to essentially tell us that the whole thing was a politically motivated ratings gimmick. And yet the Beltway pundits and the politicians still can't realize or admit that the Tea Party was at its brief peak just a 26 percent tail wagging the American dog... or that the dog stopped barking months ago.

Big media's shameful news brownout on the Wall Street protests Apparently for editors in their plush 8th Avenue skyscraper, the Wall Street Day of Rage is not among the news that the New York Times considers fit to print. There doesn't seem to have been any print articles in the Washington Post, either, and my sense is that television news coverage -- even on "liberal" MSNBC -- has been non-existent or less-than-minimal at best.

Murdoch's American Sins: Less Sensational, But More Dangerous It's the simple memory of a slain British teenaged girl -- with the added shock that family members of casualties in that Iraq War and in Afghanistan also may have been phone-hacked, and reports of police officers taking bribes from journalists -- that brings the world's largest media empire to the edge of the abyss.

Racism on Ivy League Campus and by Alum Donald Trump Cut From Same Ugly Cloth The bozos who harassed University of Pennsylvania student Christopher Abreu and Donald Trump were saying exactly the same thing: How the hell did this black man end up on an Ivy League campus?

The True Meaning of Keith Olbermann Olbermann started the 2000s not as a liberal but a guy who still wanted to be a sportscaster. Things changed because he registered his disbelief at things so many other regular Americans also could not believe were happening--America preemptively invaded another country on false pretenses, a country founded on civil liberties was now promoting torture and indefinite detention...and on and on.

What Battered Newsrooms Can Learn From Stewart's CNBC Takedown The most talked-about journalism of this week wasn't produced in the New York Times, CNN, Newsweek or NPR.
