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 May 4, 2016 for week ending May 13, 2016


"In Texas, you can use a license to bear a firearm, but you can't use a student ID. And so some of these restrictions seem targeted at trying to make it harder for certain populations to vote, but not others."

– Adam Gitlin, counsel with the Brennan Center for Justice Democracy program, on one of the many ways that voting rights are being suppressed

New Voter Suppression Laws in 17 States Will Have Major Impact on 2016 Election

MP3 Interview with Adam Gitlin, counsel with the Brennan Center for Justice Democracy program, conducted by Scott Harris


Since the 2010 midterm election, 22 states, most of them controlled by the Republican party, have passed an assortment of new laws that make it more difficult for specific groups of citizens to vote. Seventeen states will have new voting restriction laws in place for the first time in a presidential election, in November 2016. These measures include restrictive voter ID laws, reduction in the days and hours of early voting, and obstacles placed on registering new voters and accessing absentee ballots. New voter suppression laws in these states were made possible in large part by the Supreme Court's 2013 ruling, which gutted a key section of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  Story continues

Syrian-born Architect Responds to His Nation's Bloody War Through Art

MP3 Interview with Mohamad Hafez, Syrian-born artist and architect, conducted by Melinda Tuhus


The war in Syria has entered its sixth year, and despite a partial ceasefire in place for a few months that somewhat reduced the daily number of fatalities and injuries, late April attacks by both the Assad government and some rebel groups in the city of Aleppo caused the deaths of more than 200 Syrians. The United Nations and humanitarian groups have estimated that more than 300,000 Syrians have been killed in the war thus far – with more than 11 million refugees and internally displaced persons since 2011 – more than half the country's prewar population.  Story continues

Sanders Supporters Initiate Discussions to Transform Campaign into Progressive Movement

MP3 Interview with Jesse Myerson, independent journalist, conducted by Scott Harris
