Amy Goodman delivers headlines, then sits down with award-winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh for a wide-ranging discussion about: how media today must cover Yemen and Trump's policy, rather than getting distracted by tweets; remembering the My Lai massacre, and how Hersh's reporting uncovered the horrors of mass murder in Vietnam; reflecting on how working on Gene McCarthy's presidential bid shaped his life path; admitting that he knew Richard Nixon beat his wife in 1974, but did not report the story; sharing his hope that Henry Kissinger must "count burned and maimed Cambodian and Vietnamese babies" in his sleep; and connecting the torture at Abu Ghraib and secret U.S. assassination programs to this legacy of violent imperialism.
