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.

    Between The Lines at the 2017 Inauguration of Donald J. Trump Protest and the Women's March on Washington

    Since 1999, Between The Lines has covered free trade agreement, Bush Inauguration and Occupy Wall Street protests in the U.S. Quite honestly, we have never before seen crowds as massive – with such overwhelming creative energy, innovative spirit, and degree of well-informed individuals concerned about free speech, human rights and the overall state of democracy – simultaneously across the nation and across the globe. University of Connecticut professor Jeff Pressman estimates that between 3.2 million to 4.2 million people (excluding those in other countries) attended the protests during the one-day Women's Marches, considered the largest protest action in U.S. history. The New York Times has compiled an extensive collective of photos from many continents.

    Perhaps most exciting is the possibility that these protest actions are indeed the first step in the revival of the progressive movement. Listen here on MSNBC:

    Here, we aim to bring you the real voices, the news and views that truly matter and are often buried beneath riveting distractions, the issues of our humanity that are largely under-represented in mainstream media. (Be sure to refresh this page often -- more updates forthcoming.)

    Inauguration day, Jan. 20, 2017 protest rally:


    Filmmaker Michael Moore, at anti-Trump rally in McPherson Square, Washington, D.C. where thousands gathered in between marches throughout the city. Nearby, a convergence tent offered free peanut butter sandwiches, cookies, fruit and free rain ponchos.

    Our coverage of this rally ended as a series of loud explosions were heard a few blocks away, and Scott Harris' next interviewee on his cell phone conversation said there was a fire – and he quickly had to get – and we could see black smoke billowing in the sky. It turned out that small groups of "black bloc anarchists" had set a limousine on fire and the police were setting off concussion grenades and tear gas/pepper spray to thin the crowds. There were over 200 arrests during the weekend before the peaceful Women's Marches.
