Above is Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "The Second Term" from this morning. Good job, Isaiah.
Not everyone gets a "good job." Take WSWS. Here's Patrick Martin writing for them:
Obama will repay those who turned out to vote for him by carrying out measures that will devastate their jobs, living standards and social conditions. The “grand bargain” that he has pledged to negotiate with the Republicans will come at the expense of the working class, through trillions in cuts to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other social programs.
Obama also hailed the US military, mentioning specifically the special forces troops who killed Osama bin Laden, while claiming that his administration was “bringing war to an end.” This was a reference to Afghanistan, but US troops will remain there in force for years to come, while those who are moved out will be redeployed for intervention in Syria, Iran or other targets of imperialist military attack.
Well that's kind of true. It doesn't address the issue of Iraq -- the New York Times reported in September that negotiations were taking place between the White House and Iraq to send more US troops back into the country. WSWS has NEVER reported on that.
They offer a half-the-truth meal.
Can't give you the full truth. Can't tell you what Tim Arango reported in the middle of a report on Syria. But they can rush to offer other stuff.
Just not what really matters.
I got mentioned today in "Let the fun begin (Ava and C.I.)" and I thank them for quoting me.
And for the praise.
Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
