Good points, Louis.

Another example of why it's dangerous to discount or misrepresent facts
just because of who is involved:

Thomas Friedman, probably the most reactionary (and annoying) liberal on
the planet, the most pro-Zionist, pro-war, pro-neoliberal globalization
op-ed columnist alive, has a column on Syria's drought and its man-made
results and consequences, which is generally on target in terms of the
facts -- facts which were long ago laid out by progressive journalists in
MERIP and elsewhere:

But perhaps we should deny every fact reported by Friedman because he's
pond scum, eh?

PS: for those who still support Russia and/or China's role in Syria out of
some sick vestigial loyalty to their former character, come to the panel on
BRICS at the Left Forum!
