Eliza Strickland - East Bay Express Corporate Hack

I guess all the hullabaloo about the East Bay Express getting bought up by large corporations was correct - right-wing hackery is now prominent in the pages of the Express.

Shorter Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, John Perkins:

The U.S. government uses supposedly international organizations like the World Bank to drive already-poor third-world nations into further depression.

Shorter Eliza Strickland:

John Perkins sucks, so there.


Along the way Ms. Strickland makes fun of all us 'believers' for believing in conspiracies. I guess 9/11 was a case of 'the magic pilot', who flew multiple jets into multiple buildings.

And she makes fun of us for believing that the World Bank and the WTO actually do bad things to the citizens of already-poor countries.

Straight-up hackery. What was the East Bay Express doing in SF anyways? Used to be a decent paper.
