Making Contact – Robert Fisk: The Terror of Power and the Power of Terror

Listen Download | podcast

Long time Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk knows the difference between real terror and rhetoric.  He’s interviewed Osama Bin Laden 3 times, and been on the front lines with numerous armies—from the Syrians to the Israelis.  On this edition, Robert Fisk speaks about the power of words in shaping public opinion and public policy…and the tragic consequences of a press corps that doesn’t question the official line.

Special thanks to Karl Jagbandhansingh and Marie Choi for help producing this show.

Featuring:

Robert Fisk, Middle East correspondent for The Independent
