Chomsky v. Obama

I'm already familiar with Chomsky's views on Obama, as he sent me his 14-page opinion piece a while back. But he is now on WPR talking more specifically about Obama's Middle East policies.

Wish someone had told me that he was going to be in Madison the last 3 days... I so would have gone.

Want to read Obama's speech in Turkey? I don't agree with all of it, but DAMN is he a smooth talker... much better than Bush. Throwing in Turkish proverbs? Well played.

Associated Propaganda

AP writer Matti Friedman says: "Israel has identified Iran as its biggest threat, citing the country's nuclear program and its development of long-range ballistic missiles. Those fears have been compounded by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's repeated calls for the destruction of the Jewish state."

I've time and time again called out those who say Iran wants to "destroy" Israel... but now there's alleged "repeated calls"?

I urge anyone who cares about media accuracy to e-mail info@ap.org and complain.
