  1. Stone’s arrest was certainly way over the top. What I find interesting, however, is that such tactics will garner sympathy in many cases. And it provide critics with “see, I told you so” optics.

    This should be a red pill, but the idea that media in the U.S. functions as an extension of state power is just too hard for many people to accept. A whole pharmacy full of red pills — the Stone arrest being the third in a series, all stemming from the same legal matter — couldn’t wake them up.
