Consortium News‘ webcast CN Live! broke new ground in online journalism during 2019 with the only in-depth video journalism to be found anywhere.
There are plenty of five-minute video interviews on wholly complex international and U.S. domestic issues to be found both in the mainstream and alternative journalism.
Consortium News doesn’t believe issues such as multiple crises in the Middle East; the impeachment of a president; U.S. continued meddling in Latin America; the death of financier pedophile Jeffery Epstein, or U.S.-Russia relations, among many other topics, can be understood with a just a few questions to a talking head.
Thus in July of this year we launched CN Live!, a weekly series of webcasts with newsmakers and journalists that probed deep beneath the surface of the day’s headlines.
Among our many guests in 2019 were current and former diplomats, intelligence officers, politicians, activists, and academics, including Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg; Iraq War GCHQ whistleblower Katharine Gun; former intelligence officers Ray McGovern, Bill Binney, John Kiriakou, George Bebbe and Scott Ritter; Pakistan’ UN ambassador and former Australian ambassador Tony Kevin; ex-U.S. Senator Mike Gravel, Australian Senator Peter Wilson and politician Tim Canova; psychologist Lissa Johnson; Australian filmmaker Cathy Vogan; WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Kristinn Hrafnsson; Middle East analysts As’ad AbuKhalil and Giorgio Cafiero and journalists Margaret Kimberley, Whitney Webb, Pepe Escobar, Patrick Lawrence, Peter B. Collins, Aaron Maté, Ben Norton, Andrew Fowler and Michael Isikoff, among many other guests.
All this takes money to produce and if we do not meet our End-of-Year Fundraising goal, CN Live! might not make it to its next season.
You can catch up on all of 2019’s episodes by visiting our You Tube channel.
So please dig down deep in this season of giving to help keep CN Live! on the air. Thank you.
