‘Left, Right & Center’: What a Wiki-Week It Was

Posted on Dec 3, 2010
Left, Right & Center

What WikiLeaks revealed might have embarrassed some bigwigs around the world, but will the released information really hurt U.S. interests? America’s jobs outlook is still heading downward as the unemployment benefits of thousands expire. Does the deficit matter more than people do? Also in the mix for this week’s “Left, Right & Center”: Obama pops up in Afghanistan, and the rich not only get richer, but they get tax cuts too—where’s the outrage?

Seems to me the Democrats finally found the backbone they’ve been looking for.  Too bad he’s an Australian.

Still looking for a name for the middle?  How about the compromising,
capitulating, cannot fight for anything middle.

Agree with politicky re Tony and second Chip on Ariana. She is fine until she doesn’t
know the issue at all nor seems to have gotten read up on it case pinpoint North Korea
last week. She goes off Nd talks about Afghanistan or something. Go figure. I hear you
on Bob indignation even when I don’t agree with him his heart seems to be in the right

chip….. i like ariana and i don’t think she sounded lost at all.  sure, i’ll agree that sometimes she gets a bit overshadowed by robert and tony… but i really like her talking points.  the guest hosts you suggest would be great standins during absences.

You’d think after listening to this show for 3 years that I might
be less irritated with Tony’s slathering megaphone for the rich,
but no such luck.  I still listen for Robert Scheer’s righteous
indignation and Arianna’s lovely sing-song voice.

When did the progressive blogosphere elect Ariana their spokesperson?
Robert Sheer knows his shit, but huff seems sort of lost.
Could I suggest some candidates for the next election?
Chris Hedges, Nomi Prinz, Brooksley Borne, Ralph Nader or Dan Ellsberg.
I hear Bill Moyers may have some free time on Friday nights also.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg but y,all get my point,huh.

WikiLeaks has been under attack all week from governments that want to hide their misdeeds, not just so called secrets. That’s not really surprising; however, despite the hypocrisy of official Washington’s loathing of Internet blocking in other countries, it is working hard to make it happen in the US of A.
