(and possibly disinformation) pointing to alternative interpretations

hardest-hitting political show on radio. Find transcripts here of

Emory - If you miss Mae
Brussel, there's still Dave Emory. Here's the WFMU archive of his
Consortium - Independent
journalism from Robert and Nat Parry and cohorts.
- TruthDig - News hub
for alternative info. Quality leads to de-program
Prospect - Yes, it's
(yawn) liberal, but it is one of the most intelligent (albeit dry)
exponents of that perspective that I'm aware of. Low on P.C. and
high on practical insights.
Conservative - Yes, it's
(gasp!) conservative, but it doesn't shrink from trying to find common ground with some on the left. Check it out,
you might be surprised. Not the usual Fox guff.
- The Unz Review - Ron Unz's alternate press site mixes contrarians right and left. Updated daily. No Neo-cons in sight.
- Foreign Policy -
Excellent, highly readable, handsomely designed journal dealing with
- The National Interest - National and foreign policy discussed largely from a "realist" perspective. Similar virtues to the preceding journal above.

about the war(s) in progress.
Prouty Site - The late
Col. would surely have a thing or two to say about the current
- Devoted to in-depth info and research on the Jack the Ripper

- Site for Citizens for Truth about the Kennedy Assassination. Jim
DiEugenio and Lisa Pease rule!

radical centre" - not to be confused with New Labour.
International - They're
Trotkyist purists, but some of their analyses actually make sense,
if you grant Marx any credit.
Liberation Archive - The
raw unadulterated source documents from Duke University
- Break Their Haughty Power -
Whoa. The writings of an intelligent, sophisticated Marxist. Who'da thunk it?

Amazing source of books and ephemera from the Old Left, the New Left, the Civil Rights Movement,
the Labor Movement, plus the Far Right in its various permutations.
