Inspirational Line

  • "You read the papers and you watch television, so you know the kind of spiderbrained, commercially poisoned piece-of-crap reporting you get in America. If you’re reading this in Britain, you stand a chance of getting some real information, but your news is so censored and twisted in a knot that... well, that’s another story (read Chapter 8, “Kissing the Whip”). You could call this book: What You Didn’t Read in the New York Times." (Palast, 6)
