BBC. Not a very big dose, either.
Worse International Business Times
Politico. The US loves busting foreign banks over money laundering, and HSBS and UBS are up to their eyeballs in this scandal.
Financial Times. This is a lead story at the pink paper. Funny how they singled that one out and not, say, Porshenko, when the connection is more direct. Putin is widely assumed to have gotten exceedingly rich in the plutocratic land grab when the USSR fell….which took place under the tender guidance of the Dept. of State and Harvard. Not saying this is not a legitimate story, but that it is getting disproportionate attention, for the obvious reasons.
Independent (Chuck L)
McClatchy (Jason). The names in the database will be released in May.
South China Morning Post. Lambert: “Of course SCMP is owned by Jack Ma now so who knows that this really means… ”
Wall Street Journal (Tony W). From last week, still important.
Julian Assange, Counterpunch
New York Times
Juan Cole (resilc)
Big Brother is Watching You Watch
Larry Summers, Financial Times
Vanity Fair (martha r)
. Slate. Needless to say, I can’t relate.
Imperial Collapse Watch
Reuters. Resilc: “Constant warmonger propaganda, meanwhile no decent jobs, healthcare, infrastructure.”
Dean Baker, Huffington Post
Portland Press Herald (resilc)
Guardian. Philip D: “Hilarious overview of the primaries from Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle.”
Washington Post (furzy)
Sputnik News (Wat S)
Reuters (EM). The WalMart decision seems particularly important since it seems at odds with the horrid Amazon decision on what employee time an employer ought to pay for.
NPR (martha r)
Police State Watch
Vice. Resilc: “If only Countrywide Credit stole some Mars bars.”
Washington Post. Consistent with what Michael Moore pointed out (based on mere observation) in Bowling for Columbine.
CBS. Yes. Creates more easy excuses for police to kill people of color.
Financial Times. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.
Forbes. Yes, sports fans. The MSM did not pick up that Yellen basically said that, and got a hardball question from of all people Glenn Hubbard of Columbia Business School (yes, THAT Glenn Hubbard, for you Inside Job fans)
Wall Street Journal
Financial Times. This is gonna be fun.
Washington Post. Washington is not a cheap city in which to live.
Antidote du jour (Emma S). This is Polo:
