An insidious assault is underway against alternative media on the internet. Leftist and progressive websites have been suffering significant declines in traffic. Some have had online income sources cut. Many others have been publicly defamed.

Essential to the fight has been the mainstream media, which has been doing what it does best: fanning the flames of fear.
