Monthly Review is in no danger of a corporate takeover! And wouldn't internet publishing ventures be subject to takeovers too? Big problems with nearly all publishing, whether print, internet magazine, blog, etc., are that there is no editing and limited fact checking. The writing is dreadful. And while print journals have all sorts of "in-group" problems, the internet is much the same. Someone writes something, and friends chime in and say what a great piece it is, even when, as is often the case, it is awful. Many leftists are no less enamored of themselves that most other writers. They hate sharp criticism just as much too. And they promote the hell out of themselves, but all too often seldom offer a helping hand to others not in their circle of friends.
