Dean Baker writes in Perspective:
“Senator McCain was in Colombia last week touting his support for the trade agreement that the Bush administration had negotiated with the country. He also touted his support for NAFTA, contrasting both positions with Senator Obama’s opposition to the two pacts. McCain had an important ally in his campaign. The media decided to embellish McCain’s case by touting his support for ‘free trade,’ as opposed to the specific deals in question. This is a very important difference and it reflects deeply held biases in the media.”
Still happening. Free of details? Free of thought? Free of consequences? That is my take. What does free mean in regards to trade…free product? Free market?
