More from the File

Here's what caught my eye yesterday... there was a lot of good (although sometimes depressing!) writing:

Why don't Americans get angry about this type of thing as much as we should? Why do some of us seem to think people like this are entitled to "their" money?
________

One of my heroes, Dan Gillmor, on how anonymous cowards are buying the 2010 election.
________

ProPublica now has a place where you can look up your doctors to see if they are taking payola from the pharmaceutical industry.
________

A rigorous critique of the documentary Waiting for Superman by an authentic education expert who has worked for both Republican and Democrat administrations. The movie's problems? Oversimplified, omitting and sometimes just plain wrong.
________

The NPR ombudsman explains the network's policy on whether to use "troop" and "troops" when talking about individual soldiers, Marines or sailors. A voice of sanity, unlike the Star Tribune.

The piece about rich conservatives buying elections strikes a nerve, but even people who care don't know what to do about it. More good reporting might give us some facts to use....
