Hitchens longa, vita breva. If your really want to know why Orwell matters, just read Orwell's essay "Politics and the English Language." Then try to watch most TV Newspeak without upchucking.
Orwell remains his own best defense. My commendations to Mr. Hitchens for his good taste and excellent title.

This author has no journalistic ethics. I would highly discourage anyone from buying his book.
I read his article on Cyprus on Slate. Throughout the article he maintained his biased against Turkey and Turks and didn't mention a single anti-Greek argument (which he normally should do if he is trying to maintain his journalistic perspective).
Then he mentions in the middle of the article, his Greek Cypriot sister-in-law. Wow! Great ethics. Perhaps you should just write for your own family then not for the people of the United States.
