I wonder if Cohen has somehow lost his regular gig as John Batchelor's 
regular guest on WABC radio. For 5 years at least, Cohen has used this 
ultraright radio show as a place to promulgate the same talking points 
he makes on Paul Jay's TV show. Imagine that, an NYU professor emeritus 
who used to teach at Princeton and is the author of a great bio of 
Bukharin now reduced to being interviewed at a radio show that has guest 
hosts like Sebastian Gorka and Stephen Moore. Ever since Cohen became 
emeritus, he has not written a single article. All the crap he is 
credited with on The Nation is just transcriptions from Batchelor's 
radio show. That pro-Putin stuff can really rot your brain out.

Jay's Real News network has good stuff on current events as long as it 
lays off Syria and Ukraine. It is the new home of Grayzone, which gives 
you an idea of where it is coming from.

Later today, I will be blogging about "Is Tucker Carlson becoming 
woke?", prompted by the chummy interview he did with a Grayzone reporter 
about Venezuela.
