No more bedtime stories

In a way, if we care about being informed, there’s not a whole lot of difference between Mubarek in Egypt and the mainstream press in the US. They’re all part of an old comfortable system that has left most people out and on the sidelines. What we’re saying now is that we are involved, and we want to know what’s going on, in specifics. No more bedtime stories like the one with the ogre Julian Assange and the white knight Bill Keller. When we have to make decisions we don’t want the distractions of personal smears, rather we want to know where the money is going and who’s getting fucked to make our government and oligarchs richer and look good.
