Mint Press was the source for another error-plagued and politically stupid
article on Bolivia headlined "Another Latin American soft coup on tap?" that
MRzine reposted on April 7. As in the case of Venezuela, a complex situation in
which the Morales government has made some egregious errors is attributed almost
100% to US imperialism. Articles like these discredit MRzine and harm the cause
of solidarity with the progressive forces in Latin America; when we propagate
them they make us look like idiots incapable of serious critical engagement with
reality.

Sad to see MROnline serving as a propaganda outlet for the mass murder that took
place in Douma in December. I blame John Bellamy Foster and his Rasputin aide
John Mage for hiring someone with the same rancid politics as Yoshie Furuhashi.
I guess the only saving grace is that at least he or she does include some
useful posts. In seven years of genocidal war, Monthly Review has not published
a single article on Syria. Instead it has allowed the current online auxiliary
outlet and the one that Yoshie ran to crosspost the worst kind of garbage. Rick
Sterling's article linked below appeared on Mint Press, a tawdry publication
that was notorious for its article blaming East Ghouta rebels in 2013 for
gassing their own families through the accidental mishandling of sarin as if
they were the Three Stooges tossing around bottles. A few days after the article
appeared, the reporter under whose name it appeared demanded its retraction
since she had nothing to do with it. I doubt that Foster or Mage have given much
thought to Syria. 
At least Foster is spending his time productively researching and writing about
ecosocialism. On the other hand, Mage, who serves on the editorial board and has
never written a single article in the last decade, is a worthless individual
with no saving graces.
