Seriously: What. The. Fuck.
Media Matters put together this "100 Days of Fair and Balanced" video, made up of clips from FOX â€” one for every day of Obama's first 100 days.
Couple of serious jaw-droppers in there amid the, er, drumbeat of "fair and balanced":
UO prof and editor of Monthly Review: An Independent Socialist Magazine, John Bellamy Foster will speak about the current economic crisis on Monday, November 3, 6:00 PM at the Eugene Public Library in the Bascom-Tykeson Room.
Foster recently said in an interview with the Norwegian paper, Klassekampen: â€œThe fact that we are confronted with the worst financial and economic crisis in the advanced capitalist world since the 1930s is an empirical fact that no informed individual at this point doubts...We should not spend time worrying about the capitalist class. The real pain is going to fall on the working class in the advanced capitalist countries, and even more so those in the poorer and "emerging" countries. We (meaning the left) should be devoting our efforts to helping those whose needs are greatest at the bottom of the economic pyramid, rather than seeking to fix a broken system (even if it could be fixed)â€¦ It is a new historical moment, when the working class everywhere, especially in the advanced capitalist states, may at last be compelled by circumstances to begin to fight back.â€
The talk is brought to you by Black Sun Books (2467 Hilyard St, 484-3777) and the International Socialist Organization (ISO)-Eugene. Please see the ISO-Eugene website , for more details or call (541) 206-190
Foster is the author of several books including Marxâ€™s Ecology, Ecology Against Capitalism, The Theory of Monopoly Capitalism, and The Critique of Intelligent Design .
