The Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated on the American People

The Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated on the American People
Ronald Reagan, Rush Limbaugh and 'the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people' as the GOP, Fox 'News' and 'wingnut radio' becomes 'the snake that consumes its own tail'. Plus: Lincoln Chafee enters the 2016 Democratic primary; Jeb Bush flouts campaign finance laws; and NYTimes misinforms America again...

No, "the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people" is not global warming, as scam artists like Rush Limbaugh and fellow climate change denier Sen. James Inhofe would like you to believe. The greatest hoax was the one set in motion by Ronald Reagan some 35 years ago — and its still in play today, unfortunately.

But that hoax may be coming to an end. (Emphasis on may). Washington Monthly blogger (and too-occasional BRAD BLOG guest blogger) D.R. Tucker joins us on today's BradCast to discuss what he describes as the Republican Party, Fox "News" and "wingnut radio" becoming "the snake that consumes its own tail."

Plus: The New York Times deeply misinforms America again; Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat Lincoln Chafee (RI) gets into the 2016 Presidential race…for some reason; Jeb Bush continues to blatantly flout campaign laws; And FOIA goes on 'trial' in the U.S. House. All of that and more on today's BradCast…
