A reader came to me with the book, “The Bilderberg Group” by Daniel Estulin and asked me to read it. It is a conspiracy book about a group of political, corporate and academic leaders who meet every year and allow no press to attend and want no publicity. Investigating and denouncing such a group might might appeal to the right or the left. I saw it recommended by the staff at Powell’s Books, and assumed the appeal was to the left. My reader was on the right.

Mainstream newspapers like The Seattle Times ignore books like “The Bilderberg Group.” The fans of this kind of book accuse us of suppressing the truth. We are part of the conspiracy. We are the controlled media. Once in a while I think we of the mainstream media ought to read and comment on books like this–because they’re out there, our readers are reading them, and they wonder why we “suppress” them. By this blog, I give the book some publicity–albeit the publicity of being kicked.
