The Perfidy of the Post
February 28, 2009
I always take it as a good sign when something occurs in the Media Mass that makes me smack the table with the flat of my palm and silently intone, “Those bastards!” It lets me know that the Media Mass hasn’t succeeded in its mission of turning my (and your) brain into oatmeal yet.
My most recent experience with table-smacking occurred due to an encounter with an article in Friday’s Pravda Washington Post about Obama’s director of the Office of Management and Budget, Peter Orszag: Orszag Is Economic Centrist Who Knows How to Deal
This 1100 word fluffer on Orszag failed to mention some pertinent facts one might find elsewhere:
“In 1998, after serving in the Clinton administration, Orszag co-founded an economic consulting group company with his brother and Joseph Stiglitz called Sebago Associates, where he served as president through 2007. The firm’s clients have included the World Bank, the Nordic Council of Ministers, and most notably, the Central Bank of Iceland. The once prosperous economy of Iceland has been devastated by the current economic crisis, which its citizens say was carried out by a gang of financial criminals who followed disastrous policies and advice – provided by Peter Orszag and Company.“ ( The Israeli Who Runs the Obama White House )
The article also failed to mention Orszag’s involvement with the oligarchs in 1990’s post-Soviet Russia, a period in history of which many Americans are utterly ignorant.
Unsurprisingly, the Post also neglects to mention Orszag’s two mentors, Robert Rubin and Joseph Stiglitz, each one being little more than window dressing for a predatory economic philosophy, a philosophy that is seeing its fruition in the ruination of the economies of nations so that the economy of Globalism can reign supreme.
