Seymour M. Hersh - Reporter: A Memoir

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

One of the country’s top investigative reporters, Hersh set the bar high with his 1970 Pulitzer Prize-winning exposé of the My Lai massacre. In his new memoir, he describes his pursuit of that story, as well as many others, including the downing of Korean Air Flight 007, the interrogation techniques at Abu Ghraib, and the killing of Osama bin Laden. These backstories are themselves fascinating inside looks at a master reporter’s use of leads and cultivation of sources. They also reveal new information about many of these events and profile major figures of politics and journalism. Always remaining independent, even as he’s written for The New Yorker and The New York Times, Hersh shows how crucial it is for the media to challenge the official narratives.
