Ted Rall overthrows Haiti

(or, at least, the lack of real media coverage thereof)

Just when both Ted and Haiti have been in my recent thoughts, I just came across this week-old Yahoo! op/ed where Ted reminds us about the less-than-immaculate history of Haitian dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier, the "incurious US media," and the "deposing [of] a popularly elected* president." [*92 percent of the vote in an election judged "fair" by international observers]

And while the mainstream is dutifully ignoring this angle on the story in Haiti, my contact at The Poison Dart points out that the underground media has been covering it with vim and vigor.

Don't let Democracy Now's coverage go unseen and unheard. Spread the above link far and wide -- forthwith!
