Danny Schechter “The News Dissector” is one of America’s leading media critics. Though he’s Jewish himself, he is now being called an anti-Semite, a Jew-hater, a Nazi – you know the drill – because he dares to speak out about the “Big Lie” (Chris Hedges) of Israel’s propaganda narrative…and the fact that Zionist Israel is worse than apartheid South Africa (Chomsky).
Danny responded by deploring his AIPAC-loving nay-sayers as the totalitarians they are. For them, he says: “Dissent, however mild or reasonable, is not permitted. It’s always their way or the highway! We are supposed to hail AIPAC the way the Romans hailed Caesar.”
In this interview we argue a little bit but stay generally good-humored and congenial. As a former mainstream media insider turned whistleblower and critic, and a principled American Jewish voice with an acerbic sense of humor, Danny brings a much-needed perspective to this topic.
