And then there's CNN. Wow, just wow...
From Daily Kos / the Guardian / the Financial Times:
"CNN recently hit a 20-year low in prime time ratings in the United States, attracting an average of just 78,000 viewers across the whole day and 98,000 in prime time."

Political satirist, and cartoonist Mark Fiore has taken a look into the near future where there exists a Tea Party Galaxy, parallel to reality, where facts are eight times lighter than on planet Earth, and where evil Captain Ted Cruz is at the helm of the Republican Party.

I hope you enjoyed this little adventure and that you'll check out some of Mark's other fun cartoons at his own Mark Fiorie site.

As you know, our Autumn fundraiser is soon coming to an end. We haven't yet reached our goal. So if you're planning on making a donation, we'd much appreciate it. As Laffy and Paddy say, "Without you there would be no us."
