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 April 13, 2011 for week ending April 22, 2011


“Income and wealth has concentrated in the top 1 percent of households in a way (not) seen since the 1920s. And, we've stopped taxing the top ... we're not taxing corporations and individuals at the same level.”

-- Chuck Collins, director of the Institute for Policy Studies' Project on Inequality and the Common Good, on upcoming deficit reduction battles

Ending Tax Giveaways to the Rich is Key to Reducing U.S. Deficit

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with Chuck Collins, director of the Institute for Policy Studies' Project on Inequality and the Common Good, conducted by Scott Harris


There was high drama on Capitol Hill, echoed in the nation's media, as an 11th hour deal was struck between the Obama White House and Congress to avert a government shutdown over approval of federal funds for the remaining 2011 budget. Of the $38 billion in cuts fought for and won by the GOP that still must be approved by the House and Senate, most were in spending on health, education, transportation and the environment. Programs affected include community AIDS treatment projects and aid to low-income mothers and children. Other programs taking severe hits were those that funded research into developing renewable energy and energy efficiency as well as promoting clean drinking water.  Story continues

Calls Grow for Government to Account for "Mistreatment" of Accused WikiLeaks Source Bradley Manning

RealAudio  RealAudio MP3  MP3

Interview with Bruce Ackerman, Yale law professor, conducted by Melinda Tuhus


As accused WikiLeaks whistleblower Army Specialist Pfc. Bradley Manning spends his tenth month in solitary confinement at the Marine brig in Quantico, Va., his treatment has aroused opposition on many fronts. Bloggers at, have taken up his cause, and author Greg Mitchell just published a book about Manning, whose trial date has not yet been set. And in the April 28 issue of The New York Review of Books, Yale law professor Bruce Ackerman and Harvard law professor Yochai Benkler published a letter of concern that has already been signed by 300 academics, mostly law professors, calling on the Obama administration to end the military's abusive treatment of Manning -- or justify its conduct, which many experts say amounts to torture.  Story continues

Haiti's President-Elect Linked to Coup Plotters and Death Squads

Interview with Kim Ives, editor with Haiti Liberte, conducted by Scott Harris


Haiti’s Nov. 28, 2010 presidential and legislative election, conducted in the impoverished nations still trying to recover from the devastating January 2010 earthquake that killed an estimated 300,000, were labeled by many as deeply flawed. The balloting was criticized for its very low voter turnout, violent demonstrations and accusations of widespread fraud as well as manipulation of the outcome by the United States. The two candidates who moved on to compete in the March 20 second round election were bawdy singer Michel "Sweet Mickey" Martelly and Mirlande Manigat, a former first lady and senator.  Story continues
