Alexander Cockburn, the leftist journalist, has died. The 71-year-old had been living in Berlin and fighting cancer.
Cockburn was the co-editor with Jeffrey St. Clair of the political newsletter Counterpunch. On the publication's blog, St. Clair writes, "Alex kept his illness a tightly guarded secret. Only a handful of us knew how terribly sick he truly was. He didnít want the disease to define him. He didnít want his friends and readers to shower him with sympathy." Cockburn was a dedicated leftist; St. Clair described him as "friend and comrade."
