I asked Naomi Klein, in my interview last night, her to comment on OpEdNews.com.
When I asked you about coming on, if you knew OpEdNews, you said, "Of course." Any comment on OpEdNews?
"I think you guys are fantastic and yeah, I read you all the time. And I apreciate the non-partisan nature of it. And it's going to be more and more important to have real, critical alternative voices that aren't lined up behind a candidate. "
Now, I expect some will dispute her read on non-partisanship. But the fact is, OEN is one of the few progressive sites that allow criticism of candidates and advocacy for different candidates. Individual writers do take sides, but the site encourages discussions on support for third party candidates, not voting, and it allows well supported and written criticism of anyone, including Obama.
I think what Ms. Klein meant was that OEN has been and will continue to be a place where it is safe to criticize Democrats, greens, independents and republicans and we're going to need that safe place to hold Obama's feet to the fire.
