In today’s Alternet Max Blumenthal joins fellow liberal hack Ben Norton 
in joining the Baathist amen corner. Like Norton, Blumenthal once had a 
reputation for bucking the “anti-imperialists” cheering for a latter-day 
Francisco Franco. Norton was an ex-member of the International Socialist 
Organization and had mostly made money writing as a free-lancer for 
liberal ‘zines like Alternet. While I have no idea how much he makes now 
writing for Salon, a prime source of Assadist propaganda, it certainly 
must more than what Norton made as a free-lancer. Meanwhile, Blumenthal, 
who unlike Norton never had a Marxist background to betray, has seen his 
career moving in the opposite direction. While once prominent enough to 
be a guest on MSNBC, our boy Max is now free-lancing for Alternet where 
his crapola appeared this morning.
