No, this post isn't a repeat. It just's similar to one I wrote last week because I made the mistake today of visiting The Nation.
Do we have any real issues effecting our country?
Apparently not. Katrina vanden Heuvel is a spoiled, little princess who was a brat as a child and remains one today.
So it is always time to pour resources into politicians. Excuse me, certain politicians. When The Nation found ties to Dianne Feinstein's votes and her husband's mercenary business dealings, The Nation refused to run the article. But Feinstein's a Democrat.
"No one owns The Nation," Katrina likes to purr and possibly that's true because whores are rented not owned. I wonder what The Nation charges the Democratic Party for each hour of service?
It's rather telling, isn't it, that the leading critic of Barack Obama's Constitutional butchering is at Salon (Glenn Grenwald) and not at The Nation.
The magazine has trivialized the national debate and real issues. It's done that because Katrina is not up to editing a magazine -- let alone being the editor and the publisher.
At some point, she will have to answer for how she took the magazine from all-time high in subscriptions to a new record low. That happened, please note, before Barack was elected. It happens when she takes over the magazine, when she ruins it.
If you need your daily feeding of tribal mash, she'll serve it up. In fact, she's nothing but a two-bit hash slinger. But if you need information that will actually illuminate an issue, don't go looking at The Nation.
