Fox shills for Democracy Now!

News & Politics

A press release from the International Endowment for Democracy, recounts an Abbey Hoffman-ian episode from Thursday night's Hannity & The Wussy Liberalâ„¢ Show, on which the IED's president appeared:


The occasion was arranged to offer Sean Hannity a chance to complain about a low grade he received supposedly because of his conservative politics - in a course on socialism that he took with Professor Ollman 25 years ago.
Right in the middle of the interview Professor Ollman apparently whipped out a sign reading: "Tired of phony news? See www.democracynow.org."

Very nice, very nice. Now, for a couple of questions. Umm, if you're creating a progressive organization to promote Democracy at home -- an implicit criticism of nation-building exercises like Iraq -- why would you go and give yourself the acronym IED?

And while we're at it... why did Howard Zinn, Gore Vidal and others agree to work with Ramsey Clark, the bozo behind ANSWER and attendee of the funeral of Slobodan Milosevic?
