BookTV's IN DEPTH interview of Alexander
Cockburn by Connie Doebele
What does it mean to you to be a
It means basically, initially
challenging pretty much everything that's put before you in either audio
or visual form or in literature or in journalism. Obviously, it
has a social and political vision behind it. I mean radical is
like one of these words like liberal, it's very hard to even get a fix
on it anymore... Twenty years ago liberal meant something very different
from what it does now, I think. Radical really means that you
don't necessarily regard, in fact, you absolutely don't regard the
Democratic Party as about as far left as you can go on the American
political spectrum. It's seriously to the Left.--Alexander
