Belén Fernández Dresses Down Thomas Friedman
A review of "The Imperial Messenger: Thomas Friedman at Work," by Belén Fernández, published by Verso in its new series Counterblasts, dedicated to "challenging the apologists of Empire and Capital."
What's scary about Thomas Friedman is not his journalism, with its underinflated insights and twisted metaphors. Annoying as his second-rate thinking and third-rate writing may be, he's not the first - or the worst - hack journalist.
