Re: Carlson, like Peter Hitchens was right on Syria, where were the “left”?
Well depends what you mean by the left I suppose. My ire is more for Carlson than Greenwald - it doesn't matter how many times he might be right about some issue he thinks he can make capital out of, his general aims (as well as his backers) seem pretty clear to me and I don't like it - call me old fashioned - just my opinion.
Greenwald I've always known wasn't necessarily 'left' in the same way I might be, and sort of respected his position/journey from the more libertarian end of things - plus he's done some good journalism - not what I'd describe Carlson as doing personally, more rabble rowsing. I don't think my offhand cynical comment about a journalist constitutes a witch-hunt but there we are - no biggie
