Regarding "Left Hook" (Feature, May 28) about the Real News Network: Hurray! I think such ventures must be careful to avoid what Barbara Ehrenreich described in her book, Bright-Sided-how the relentless promotion of positive thinking has undermined America, that is, a tendency by groups, even progressive media, to never reveal the shades of grey or the negative. I attend many progressive events and still find a boosterish emphasis on sloganeering that is not that helpful. No one wants to be controversial-not even in progressive circles.
