George Galloway, the media, and the end of Respect

by Jon Lansman.

The departure of Salma Yaqoob and the withdrawal as a candidate by Kate Hudson may well mark the end of Respect. The Galloway hate-mongers seem to think the story is all about George Galloway. Galloway is “a sham”, Liberal Conspiracy has it, and Respect is a Galloway “ego-proxy” says Labour Uncut. George Galloway, warts and all, has […]

Assange: no superhero

by Lucy Reese.

Julian Assange. I won’t say that I don’t think the work he did with WikiLeaks was totally awesome and incredibly important, yet as I’ve argued before, I have many reservations towards Assange the person – or rather the persona he projects to the world.

Julian Assange on the Corporation

by Jon Lansman.

Julian Assange has been the subject of much media attention since last week’s Wikileaks scoop. Big Think drew my attention to his writings of another sort, in that case creative, bad and pretentious.
