Recommended read - Paul Krugman

Very interesting article from Paul Krugman in the New York Times on the dangers of right-wing media (and others) whipping up hatred. Although his focus is the shootings of George Tiller and of the Holocaust Museum guard, it is relevant this side of the pond in the light of the election of two BNP MEPs. He writes:
supposedly respectable news organizations and political figures are giving aid and comfort to dangerous extremism.
Yes indeed.
