A big untold media story from over the past few years is the great reduction in insurgent progressive political voices online. I referred to the impact of this story in one corner of the country last night, with the loss of Hawaii for Democracy.
Today, I’m finding something similar going on in another corner of the country. Up in the northeast, Vermont is losing many of its collection of small liberal political parties.
The Vermont Green Party, the Liberty Union Party and the Grassroots Party have all withered to such an extent that they can’t even keep their web sites running any more. That leaves us with the Vermont Progressive Party, which has always been the most stylish of Vermont’s liberal alternatives to the Democrats.
