The War on Stupid

The Christian Science Monitor continues its sad journalistic decline with it´s Bolivia coverage perhaps leading the way, rivaling the Economist.

CSM´s dunce LatAm reporter Sarah Miller Llana again proves why she shouldn´t be allowed near a keyboard with her confused and difficult to read piece on Bolivia and the Drug War, "In Latin America, leftist leaders evict US drug warriors". It is a marked improvement from her earlier work, in that she actually interviews someone with an alternative perspective to US crapoganda, Kathryn Ledebur of the Andean Information Network. But because Sarah either doesn´t like or doesn´t understand what Ledebur really has to say about US drug policy towards Bolivia, the piece devolves into a ´he said, she said` mess with the opposing pro-US side being none other than bonified hack Eduardo Gamarra. This is just sad, no wonder CSM no longer prints in hard copy.

If you want to know what a well written and balance article on the same subject looks like just go read Jean Freidman-Rudovsky at Time.
