USA Now Marxist?

Barack I

USA NOW MARXIST?: I suppose it had to happen sometime after the accession of Barack I, but it’s still an historic moment: a writer on Russia’s Pravda has described the U.S.A. as “Marxist” and called for Russians to rethink their American investments.

Pravda has quite a bit of courage and some good articles these days. Wish they’d do two things, though: 1) put their best material in audio form and start an Internet radio network with licensable hourly newscasts to compete with the “Western” corporate media (which could also be put on shortwave); and 2) stop running the sensationalistic/sexy stuff with which they salt their site in an apparent effort to increase ratings and revenue — it hurts the credibility of the serious pieces.
