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.

Police Killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson Exposes U.S. Culture of Racism and Violence

MP3 Interview with Kevin Alexander Gray, author and activist, conducted by Scott Harris


In the aftermath of the police shooting of Michael Brown, that killed the unarmed 18-year-old African American in Ferguson, Missouri, the predominately black St. Louis suburb exploded in protest and violence. In the week since the death of Brown, peaceful protests during the day have contrasted with nightly running street battles between riot-clad police and angry crowds defying curfews and throwing rocks, bottles and Molotov cocktails at state and local law enforcement officials. Many in the community are infuriated that the police officer involved in the shooting has not yet been charged with murder.  Story continues
