The problem I see is that in a 24 hour news cycle, they can make the term "dissident" be akin to anti-American revolutionaries.

Think "gravitas"....that day when GWB selected Dick Cheney...virtually the entire MSM was flooded with newsreaders and anchors using the word Gravitas.

They can do the same with dissident.

Regardless of all that, I completely agree with the thrust of the article.
