The longtime journalist Glen Ford has died at the age of 71. He was co-founder of Black Agenda Report and a vocal critic of President Obama.
Glen Ford: “But we at Black Agenda Report have for some time been saying that Obama is not the lesser of evils, but the more effective evil. … He’s, first of all, created a model for austerity, a veritable model, with his deficit reduction commission. He’s introduced preventive detention, a law for preventive detention. He’s expanded the theaters of war in drone wars, and he’s made an unremitting assault on international law.”
