Why It Matters

In response to John Judis, the reason why Robert Dreyfuss's previous work for Lyndon LaRouche is relevant -- insofar as the employment history of any opinion journalist is relevant -- is because so much of his contemporary work is indistinguishable from what what other members of the LaRouche organization write today. I mean, seriously, calling the Iraqi Foreign Minister a "puppet?" John isn't praising Ho Chi Minh anymore. Neither is Marshall Wittman earning his dough on behalf of far-right Christian evangelicals. Believe it or not, I was once a Ralph Nader supporter, but certainly not anymore. Robert Dreyfuss, however, is still ranting about Zionist conspiracies and shilling on behalf of any anti-American figure he can find.
