We've established what you are, now we're
haggling about price.
For a small piece of paper it carries a lot of weight
Marc Cooper, who apparently was fighting the man back when I was still knee-high to a neo-con defends his participation in PajamAmway Media:
While we’re at it, let’s squeeze another mini-post right in here. I love how the armchair gallery makes gratuitous suggestions on how and I others ought to be making a living in way that more directly pleases them! Fantastic. I’m referring to some of the low-level burbling about my being part of Pajamas Media. I’m getting a little weary explaining away my existence… so I’m going to cede the floor to my bud David Corn who wrote a riposte to James Woolcott’s attack on PJ’s. I fully associate myself with David’s remarks and wonder out loud if Woolcott would like to publicly defend the myriad corporate sponsors who fund Vanity Fair magazine– not to mention that mindless Royalty-fawning twaddle that fills so many pages of the mag? I think James is a talented and smart writer and I judge him on that basis. Not on who he has done business with in a market economy.
Whatever gets you through the war, Marc...
