Negri article in 'The Independent'

http://news.independent.co.uk/people/profiles/story.jsp?story=552229

Did anyone see the article on Negri in 'The Independent' the other day?

What utter rubbish! The idiotic journalist interviewing Negri failed to ask him any important questions about his recent theoretical ideas at all! It reads like a tabloid 'interview'. Anyway for those that missed the article I have posted a link -for what its worth! angry

Worst article ever - Hari was so out of his depth that Negri just chose to fuck him off. Sqaulid writer.

Hari has produced a number of pretentious and slightly ignorant articles such as that one with negri, to be honest i'm slightly pissed off that someone so young could get an interview with negri and waste his time with such ass-wipe questions

Johann Hari in an article wrote this just after 11th September

The anti-globalisation movement has many benign aspirations to enhance participatory democracy and curb corporate power. But it also has some violent and frightening adherents who are capable of the kind of terrorism being visited upon us by Muslim fundamentalists.

I emailed him asking him what precise evidence he had of this capability and did not get a reply.

Hari was one of those liberals who supported the Iraqi crusades. He wrote a few months ago how he had agonised over whether or not to support them but, in the absence of any counter argument from the left, he felt that he had no choice but to weigh in behind Our Tony...errr...sorry, our lads.

When I wrote a letter to The Independent on Sunday, countering all of Hari's arguments, they were regrettably unable to find any space to publish it.

I steer clear of Hari's articles now. Obviously, it is part of his brief to write provocative articles. Likewise, we would be fools if we only read those writers that we agreed with. Still, he's unlikely to say anything that could surprise me now, so what's the point?
