When Nader's in the Spotlight, It Is Usually for the Wrong Reasons

When Ralph Nader is in the national spotlight, it's usally for all the wrong reasons. Like last November, when he dropped the Uncle Tom bomb on president-elect Barack Obama. (In an interview with Shepard Smith on Fox News, he wondered aloud whether Obama was going to be "Uncle Sam for the people of his country, or Uncle Tom for the giant corporations.") Or in 2000, when he arguably cost Al Gore the 2000 presidential election.

But when he is not busy helping the wrong president get elected, or putting his foot in his mouth as in the Uncle Tom incident, Nader usually makes a lot of sense. For example, in the video below he talks about the dangerous power that coporations have accumulated in American life.

Unfortunately, for him and for us, when he makes sense the mainstream media are not quite as interested in what he has to say, and you have to tune in to Free Speech TV to hear him speak.
