The Alternative Media

Via Harry's Place, more Holocaust denial in Indymedia - Why I support "Holocaust" Revisionism

Nothing new there but this piece is written by one John Paul Cupp who is part of the Iraqi Resistance Solidarity Network.

So was the point -
(1) There are some nutcases out there
(2) Indymedia will publish anything
(3) pro-Arab anti-Americans are sometimes Anti-Jew

d) All of the above.

I am reminded of the editorial policies of student newspapers in the early 90's: "We will publish anything" they said, and they did. As far as they were concerned anything else was censorship. This ethos is shared by Scoop and Indymedia. Having read their Chomsky and decided that they will not participate in the manufacture of consent, they have decided it is better to put down the burden of editorial judgement and leave it to the reader instead. So instead of processed pabulum, we have unfiltered sewage. Hooray!
