Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The fact that I don't consider the Times or Le Monde the equivalent of the Volkische Beobachter doesn't mean I don't think there was propaganda in the press. But if you bothered to read what I wrote you'd see that what I was arguing is that among the crap there's a lot of excellent reporting. You apparently can't distinguish between a Paul Krugman or a Bill Kristol, a Dana Priest from a Judy Miller. And that's the reason I ask the rhetorical question about having ever read the press in a dictatorship, hint, it doesn't look like the NYT or the WaPo, hell, even Fox would have been far beyond the limits in the fairly mild dictatorships of post-Stalinist Eastern Europe.

And I've read Chomsky, don't feel like arguing about him.
