11 Jul 2020 – Chris Hedges talks to journalist Dean Yates, who was head of the Reuters‘ Baghdad bureau on 12 July 2007, when two of his employees–Saeed Chmagh and Namir Noor-Eldeen–were shot and killed by the U.S. Army, which tried to cover up the war crime. The killing of the reporters and others was recorded on the now-infamous video Collateral Murder leaked by Chelsea Manning and released by WikiLeaks.

Chris Hedges is a Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist who was a foreign correspondent for fifteen years for The New York Times, where he served as the Middle East Bureau Chief and Balkan Bureau Chief for the paper. He previously worked overseas for The Dallas Morning News, The Christian Science Monitor, and NPR. Until this month, he wrote a weekly column for the online magazine Truthdig. He is the host of the Emmy Award-nominated RT America show On Contact.
