Conservative columnist David Frum, who was speechwriter for former President George W. Bush, blasted Fox News on Sunday for creating an “alternative knowledge system.”

“These media institutions, they started as political projects. They started as ways to offer an alternative point of view on current events. They have become an important industry and so they see the conservative world not as a set of ideas, but as a demographic and the way you appeal to a demographic is working by conflict.”

(via MoveOn, source)

I like David Frum, he’s a conservative but in general he’s a really bright guy. The kind of person I could have an intelligent conversation with, maybe disagree with but walk away from knowing that his opinion came from a logical understanding but perhaps from a different perspective. He’s one of that rare breed of conservative that can look at Fox News and say “no, objectively your organization is lying to everyone. I broadcast my opinion and you’re broadcasting propaganda.”

This is a man I could easily sit and listen to and completely understand his differing view.
