I once counted over 40 mentions of nbc universal in a single nyt article, those 2 are chummy, to say the least...my point?
Naomi has a lot to be proud of with this book, anyone who's read it would know that!
it can't be mentioned enough in the media.

Klein at her best. When she's good, there's no one smarter or more perceptive. I especially appreciate her thoughtful comments about the Obama administration toward the end. I'm very struck by the idea that citizens have become "consumers" of politics who vote once and then sit back as if we've bought a new product and are waiting for it to start working.

I'm a strong Obama supporter and remain pretty confident in him and his agenda, so I'm looking for ways to assist that progress. As a liberal, I've been irked by the (to my mind) unproductive carping and sniping from the left.

Klein reminds me that a mobilized citizenry is essential to any administration. We seem to be waiting for Obama to step up to the pulpit and exhort us to rise and go forth. (He did it so well during his campaign.) Perhaps, though, we are already doing what needs to be done and just need to keep on doing it. The test, I think, will be if the Afghan war continues to drag out inconclusively a year or so from now.

How many times does this author need to repeat the name of her book?????? This repetition is as obnoxious as the branding that she correctly condemns. ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!
