Topic: Accuracy in Media
A Nov. 8 Accuracy in Media column by Cliff Kincaid plugs the claim by writer Zubi Diamond that the Federal Reserve is "interfering in free markets through currency manipulation," which is "the type of stuff we accused the communist and socialist governments of doing," adding that the Fed's policy of quantitative easing is in alignment with "George Soros’s agenda to destroy global capitalism."
Kincaid has done numerous columns featuring Diamond, whom he touts as a "financial expert," and Diamond himself his written two AIM columns. Diamond is also the author of the curiously punctuated "Wizards of Wall Street: & Washington Lap Dogs; The Scam That Elected Barack Obama: The Economic Crisis."
But who is Diamond beyond thte "writer-composer" and "entrepreneur investor by trade" he claims to be? As it turns out, he's a conspiracy theorist with apparent anti-Semitic leanings.
As Media Matters details, the self-published "Wizards of Wall Street" engages in smears of George Soros that are rooted in anti-Semitic stereotypes, including calling Soros the "mastermind" behind of a "cabal of slithery rich" who "visited financial violence on the American people to get Barack Obama elected."
Diamond goes on to state that Soros "chose Obama" to be president because he "wanted somebody that hates the traditional America, and its constitutions, a left wing radical, like himself."
No wonder Kincaid likes Diamond so much -- Diamond's as much of a conspiracy freak as Kincaid is.
