Award-winning Investigative Journalist Robert Parry (1949-2018)

Award-winning investigative journalist and founder/editor of, Robert Parry has passed away. His ground-breaking work uncovering Reagan-era dirty wars in Central America and many other illegal and immoral policies conducted by successive administrations and U.S. intelligence agencies, stands as an inspiration to all in journalists working in the public interest.

Robert had been a regular guest on our Between The Lines and Counterpoint radio shows -- and many other progressive outlets across the U.S. over four decades.

His penetrating analysis of U.S. foreign policy and international conflicts will be sorely missed, and not easily replaced. His son Nat Parry writes a tribute to his father: Robert Parry’s Legacy and the Future of Consortiumnews.

This Week on Between The Lines

Posted March 2, 2011 for week ending March 11, 2011


"Why does Wisconsin Gov. Walker and the GOP want to destroy unions?"

"It's the primary economic motive of corporations and the Republican party to get rid of unions so that people would be forced into a race to bottom and have to go hire themselves to the most abusive employer who pays the worst wages and doesn't offer any benefits. That's paradise as far as corporate America goes."

-- Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive Magazine, on the massive, two-weeklong pro-union protests in Madison, Wisconsin, where crowds have risen from 10,000 to 100,000 supporters this past Saturday.

Interview with Matthew Rothschild, editor of The Progressive Magazine, conducted by Scott Harris

wisconsin For more than two weeks, large numbers of Wisconsin union members and their supporters from across the U.S. have converged on the state capital in Madison to protest Republican Gov. Scott Walker's effort to slash state workers' rights. On Saturday, Feb. 26, an estimated 100,000 pro-union demonstrators swarmed the State Capitol making clear that the outcome of the fight over union collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin will have consequences far beyond the state's borders.

Interview with T. Kumar, advocacy director with Amnesty International, conducted by Scott Harris

saudi Widespread protests challenging autocratic regimes and monarchies across the Middle East and North Africa have now spread from Tunisia and Egypt to other countries in the Middle East, including: Bahrain, Yemen, Algeria, Morocco, Iran, Djibouti, Jordan, Kuwait, Sudan, Syria and Oman. However, the worst violence in this wave of unrest is now occurring in Libya, where the embattled leader Moammar Gadhafi, in power for 41 years, is engaged in a pitched battle with large numbers of his people allied with former members of the nation's military. Violently repressed protests in major cities soon devolved to an armed revolt, with large portions of Libya's territory now under the control of anti-Gadhafi rebels. The U.S. and United Nations have responded to the crisis by demanding Gadhafi step down from power and leave the country. Washington has imposed a freeze on Libya's U.S.-based assets and the European Union is enforcing an arms embargo. Story continues
