Mother Jones

The supposedly progressive American magazine Mother Jones is thirty years old.  Since I saw this hack job on Rachel Corrie, something so bad Little Green Footballs would have been embarrassed to publish it (and expertly eviscerated by Phan Nguyen), I’ve lost all respect for Mother Jones.  This is more proof that what Americans mean by ‘progressive’ is what the rest of the world sees as ultra-reactionary.  Publishing this kind of hate literature is an editorial mistake you are simply not allowed to make.  I wouldn’t piss on Mother Jones if she were on fire.
