Claud proclaimed that facts and rumours were of equal significance, and warned against what he called ‘the factual heresy’ — the claim, dear to journalists with a saint-like idea of their own mission, that lumps of truth lie about like gold nuggets waiting to be picked up.
Claud, although an undisciplined Communist, went along with her, explaining: ‘I don’t see why disbelief should be a barrier to religious bigotry.’ Next door to St Mary’s, behind locked gates, is Myrtle Grove, thought to be the oldest non-fortified private house in Ireland.

 IN PERSPECTIVE: Alexander Cockburn and Christopher Hitchens
Cockburn and Hitchens are best known now to US readers through their columns in The Nation, a fortnightly magazine with a largish subscription ('One American in 2,559 subscribes to The Nation' reads their current internal ad) and a political spectrum that runs from mainstream Democratic Party liberal to social democratic.
Cockburn's relation to Marxism is partial and, ultimately, contradictory: it grounds his fearless and revealing critique of capitalist society but provides no practical direction for even the beginnings of an organised counterforce.
In their distinctive ways, Cockburn and Hitchens delight in their roles as rogue journalists, as displaced mavericks from Britain who are allowed to entertain as well as inform and provoke their readers by taking a caustic look at a ruling class more than confident enough (at the moment) to tolerate such 'freedom of the press'.

 Claud Cockburn: Evelyn Waugh's Ear Trumpet
I was told that Evelyn, from sources unknown, had somehow acquired the notion that his mother, a connection of the Cockburn family, had, as the saying went "married beneath" her when she wed Arthur Waugh who, if one faced facts, was nothing more or less than a publisher: a man in trade.
Even then I found it difficult to see how the Cockburn family, half of whom had for a hundred years been coining money out of the port business, could be regarded as so aristocratically superior to people who tried to make some money out of publishing.
Preposterous as the whole notion may today appear, I am inclined to think that this absurd report of some kind of mesalliance really did affect Evelyn as a boy and thus fueled the snobbery which was evident at Oxford and became obsessive in his later life.

Claud was a child of empire, born in the British legation in Peking, son of Harry Cockburn, the British minister there during the Boxer rising, who had spent twenty years in Chungking and was on friendly terms with the Empress Dowager of the Middle Kingdom.

And being a great connoisseur of propaganda techniques, Claud would certainly have enjoyed CounterPunch's savage new dissection of the propanda blitzes surrounding the Empire's attacks on Iraq, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia, described in Cockburn and St Clair's new history, Imperial Crusades.
