Chris Hedges on 9/11, Touring U.S. Economic Disaster Zones in New Book



DemocracyNow.org - In the new book, "Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt," journalist Chris Hedges and illustrator Joe Sacco look at the poorest areas in the United States, "sacrifice zones" where human beings and natural resources have been used and then abandoned. A former New York Times correspondent, Hedges reported from Ground Zero beginning just after the 9/11 attacks. In 2002, he was part of the team of reporters at The New York Times awarded the Pulitzer Prize for the paper's coverage of global terrorism. Over the past decade he has become one of the leading chroniclers of the state of the nation. Hedges joins us to discuss the 11th anniversary of 9/11 and his tour of the nation's economic disaster zones

3. Chris H. is such a breath of fresh air

 

I have the highest respect for how vocal, how passionate,
and how spot-on his work and his writing is.

Thanks so much for posting this.
