In June of 1992, when all the polls showed that Bill Clinton didn’t have a chance, he took his saxophone onto the Arsenio Hall show, put on dark glasses, and blew “Heartbreak Hotel.” Greil Marcus, one of America’s most imaginative and insightful popular culture critics, was the first to name this as the moment that turned Clinton’s campaign around—and to make sense of why. Double Trouble draws on articles Marcus published from 1992 to 2000 to explore the remarkable and illuminating kinship between Bill Clinton and Elvis Presley—and, moreover, to explore how culture is made and shared in today’s America and how, through culture, people remake themselves.

Double Trouble is a unique and essential book about the final years of the tw

Hillary Clinton: US Losing Information War to Alternative Media

Aired on RT, March 3, 2011 rt.com The US is losing the global information war, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared while appearing before a congressional committee to ask for extra funds to spread US propaganda through new media. Clinton said existing private channels are not good enough to handle the job, naming as rivals Al Jazeera, China’s CCTV and RT — which she watches, she added. Clinton was defending her department’s budget in front of the House’s Committee on Foreign Affairs on Wednesday. Clinton said the US should step up its propaganda effort and get back “in the game” of doing “what we do best.” “During the Cold War we did a great job in getting America’s message out. After the Berlin Wall fell we said, ‘Okay, fine, enough of that, we are done,’ and unfortunately we are paying a big price for it,” she said. “Our private media cannot fill that gap.” “We are in an information war and we are losing that war.
