I have to give Bill Maher credit. Months before the OWS protests and before the rest of the media caught up, Maher was talking income disparity, as this post by Heather in April shows. Maher smacks the media for trying to paint a happy face on how bad things are getting for the vast majority of us, much to the chagrin of guest Dana Loesch. Of course, I'm more chagrined that Loesch is given yet another platform to spew her ignorance.

Can you help us out?
