Read the Republican Noise Machine author David Goldstein has written a post today entitled We’re number two. We have to try harder. In his post, "Goldy" talks about the fact that the right wing blogs have an infrastructure (i.e. KVI and KTTH talk radio) to support them - one of the reasons the GannonGuckert story hasn't been talked about much in the mainstream media.

If you want to understand how today's media works and why the right wing has a better echo chamber than we do, you should read The Republican Noise Machine, by author David Brock.

It's a book we came across months ago, and it gives a lot of insight into the right's echo chamber and how the mainstream media is slanted towards conservatives. Brock is a former right winger who used to write about the Clintons, and since he's been inside the system, he can explain how it works.

Brock is the guy behind the organization Media Matters for America, if you didn't know already. He reguarly appears on Air America Radio.

The Republican Noise Machine is at the top of NPI's reading list. We highly encourage you to check it out.
