  • Steve Bannon's Former Site Is the New Monarch of Right-Wing Media

    Steve Bannon's Breitbart News has elected a president, reshaped the media landscape, and eclipsed Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.

  • When "Free Speech" Kills

    Every person who's ever misused arguments for free speech to defend Nazis or white supremacists  --  just so they could puff out their chests and apocryphally quote Voltaire with smug certitude  --  has some measure of Heather Heyer's blood on their hands.

Romney doled out lavish executive bonuses as Bain was failing, then threatened the FDIC. This parody covers Rolling Stone's explosive disclosures (9/13/2012) with supporting FDIC documents. See www.campaignwatch.org for references and a link to FDIC documents. This parody is based upon the song "King of the Road," words and music by Roger Miller. The production is on-the-fly, but the story behind it is of major consequence for the upcoming US election and the nation's future.
