Naomi Klein on Obama

By Ben Trott

Naomi Klein, in an interview with the Real News Network, here offers some follow-up comments to her speech at the Media Reform Conference (see earlier post here) earlier this year. She continues to argue the need for progressives and the left to build pressure on Obama, pointing out that this is certainly what others have been doing - with some success. The period of transition, between a potential Obama election in November and inauguration in January, she argues, will be a crucial moment. There appears, however, to be little in the way of strategising (by the left) as to how this could be carried out, with energies directed instead to the defeating of the 'greater evil'.
