There’s a Better Way to Say Hello

Instead of ending Middle East exploitation and supporting the
ingenuity of Arab communities, the Bush administration is
publishing HI, an Arabic-language magazine steeped in
cultural imperialism. While it may be true that jazz musician Norah
Jones, Arabic poetry, and wedding planning (all featured in the
first issue of HI) are all part of this American life,
this Bush-style journalism serves to undermine Arab ideas — while
misrepresenting American thought itself. Andrew Buncombe’s review
of this latest project of the Bush propaganda machine can be read
on, one of many articles posted that
alerts citizens to under-reported stories of importance. To read
underground views on topics ranging from sex to globalization, or
post your ideas for HI Volume 2, check out, the web site with the mantra ‘if you
can’t change the media, be the media.’
