Extra! Extra! Read Nil About It! by by Tom Engelhardt

I rarely find myself in the same camp with former CIA director and neocon wild man R. James ("World War IV") Woolsey, but recently in an interview in Esquire magazine, he was quoted as saying wistfully, "There are days when I really miss the Soviet Union." Well, present press coverage is almost enough to make this reader nostalgic for the good old days of Cold War reportage when at least connecting the geopolitical dots was thought to be an essential part of covering the world.
