LYDON DECONSTRUCTS THIS MOMENT

In After New Hampshire, Lydon sums up what we've been clamoring about the last few weeks:

Christopher Lydon
Dean's campaign was a critique of the somnolent self-satisfaction that runs through our housecat press.  And people loved him for it. [...]

    No, the results so far are not about politics.  They're about an assault by commercial media on the very idea of a self-willed, self-defining citizenry.  Howard Dean scares the institutional media out of their wits--not because of who he is or what he might do as president, but because of what he and "Internet democracy" say about them.
