What the hell is wrong with this country? How is it possible that both our major newsweeklies are edited by foreigners? Fareed Zakaria runs Time magazine, and from what I’ve seen of his appearances on CNN, his grasp of everything and anything is firmly rooted in corporate boot licking and preserving the status quo for the rich.
Really? There was no worthy American-born, native-English-speaking person who could do the job? It had to go to a guy from Pakistan?
Newsweek is run bythe English-woman Tina Brown. She’s married to a fellow Brit, so she must be here on one of those rich people’s lackeys special exemption work visas. How do they work again?
Probably, the wealthy scum in the corporate board rooms that control these two publications were unable to find an American journalist willing to sell the country down the tubes they way these two do. We can only hope that that type of integrity still exists. Evidence of it is certainly not on view via the corporate media.
(I'm not even going to get into how Piers Morgan ended up in Larry King's old seat. Hopefully, he'll be indicted and convicted for the phone tapping scandal in England and we'll be rid of his smarmy ass.)
