Response to Good article
When he filed the story, he went back to the enclave where everyone thinks the same and then supposes to tell the rest of us what is "normal" or "proper thinking". Telling quotes from the story:
"We met dozens of people along the way. We asked them about themselves, about their communities, about their votes. Some were leery of us. Several asked politely: "What are you trying to accomplish?" Others were more blunt: "What's your angle?" Another version: "What are you hoping to find?"
We met Bruce Owen outside Abilene, Kan. He invited us into his home, introduced us to his wife, Donna -- and then seemed to wish he hadn't. He told us he rarely saw people like himself portrayed in "the media," except as objects of derision.
He had a point there."
What this story says is how much a large part of this country tunes out the elite East/West Coast media. Dead men walking.
