It's really sad to see Shane Bauer become this kind of shill for establishment propaganda. With every story Democracy Now did about what he went through in Iranian prison, making him sound like a peace-loving, free thinking journalist, one has to wonder what the hell happened. To love democracy is to be willing to fight for the voices of people you don't agree with. On principle. Based on what I'm hearing from him, sounds like he would have advocated silencing I.F. Stone. On the bright side, I think your impact is increasing. They are losing control of the narrative and you've genuinely helped wrest it from their hands.
