“Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting criticized Will in connection with the 1996 election, for “commenting on the presidential race while his second wife, Mari Maseng Will, was a senior staffer for the Dole presidential campaign,” including commenting on a Dole speech without disclosing that his wife had helped write it.“
“In a Washington Post column on June 5th 2008, Will stated that “Drilling is underway 60 miles (97 km) off Florida. The drilling is being done by China, in cooperation with Cuba, which is drilling closer to South Florida than U.S. companies are.” This statement is false.“
The last thing the corporatist shills want is people, average people, thinking about the collapsing economy right before the election. The “haves” want everyone to stay too busy working rather than worrying about their vanishing standard of living. But that fact remains that we have lost over 300k jobs in this country since Jan. alone and just today they announced the dollar dropped to the Euro again, setting a record, at a 1 to 1.61 rate.
