Greewald v. Kinsley, Part 2

Greenwald v. Kinsley, Part 2
P. Schultz
June 7, 2014

            Below is a link to Glenn Greenwald’s review of Michael Kinsley’s review of his book, No Place to Hide. It isn’t long and deserves to be read, especially as Kinsley’s review skipped over the last chapter in Greenwald’s book on the rather incestuous relationship between the media and the US government. And as Greenwald points out, Kinsley’s review confirms his, Greenwald’s, characterization of how dissenters are marginalized in the U.S. when they dissent publicly. And pay particular attention to the advice Lawrence Summers gave Elizabeth Warren after was elected to the Senate.

            Still think the argument that our politicians are, almost universally, servants of the status quo is fanciful? Not so much.
