Géraldine | Appeals against so-called « fascism » in France because of the election of Nicolas Sarkozy are demagogic and misleading. Sarkozy is not more « dangerous » than Ségolène Royal would have been. The SYSTEM is the « danger ». Royal supports the euro-militarist strategy of François Bayrou, and was willing to prevent Iran from developing CIVIL nuclear technology. Furthermore, the French « left » is not well known abroad.

Patrick O'Connor | After four disastrous years of US military occupation, Bill Moyers’ April 25th PBS special “Buying the War” attempted to hold the mainstream US media accountable for its complicity in selling the war on Iraq to the US public. Moyers documented how the US media, with The New York Times in a leading role, bowed to financial and political pressure, succumbed to an environment of patriotism and fear of terrorism, and uncritically reported false US government claims. Tragically, despite the terrible consequences of 60 years of Israeli oppression of the Palestinian people, there is still no significant movement to hold the US mainstream media accountable for a similar, dramatic failure in covering Israel and Palestine, and for its complicity in the US’ uncritical support for Israel.
