‘I have tried trade, but I found that it would take ten years to get under way in that, and that then I should probably be on my way to the devil.’ – (Thoreau, ‘Walden’)
Noam Chomsky once emailed us:
‘Am really impressed with what you are doing, though it’s like trying to move a ten-ton truck with a toothpick. They’re not going to allow themselves to be exposed.’ (Chomsky, email to Media Lens, September 14, 2005)
These were kind words from Chomsky. But in fact, ‘they’ – corporate journalists – often do an excellent job of exposing themselves.
