In my latest piece for LA Progressive, I discuss what went wrong at The Canary.
For about four years I was a regular contributor to the UK-based online publication The Canary. The experience was instrumental in launching my writing career and helping me build a small following on social media. The Canary hired me as a contributor to its global section and I subsequently submitted articles about current affairs in Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. As one of its few US-based writers, I also began to write extensively about the Trump administration and the failure of the Democratic Party to provide an alternative to crushing neoliberalism at home and endless imperialism abroad.
