Interview: Jere Van Dyk; Journalist or Fraus

"Captive: My Time As A Prisoner of the Taliban" Heroic tale or Fraud?

Join host, Linda Olson-Osterlund for a probing interview with author Jere Van Dyk about his new book. Over the years Van Dyk, who was raised in the Portland area, has been a reporter for CBS news, the New York Times, National Geographic and much more. He wrote the book, In Afghanistan: An American Odyssey based on travels in the 1980's and later served as a front man for the National Security Council in Washington DC.

The new book is filled with inconsistencies and lacks adequate corroboration. Was he even a captive? You be the judge.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 07/20/10

Air date: 
Tue, 07/20/2010 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
With Joe on vacation, Abe checks in on the fracas between the NAACP and the Teabaggers.

This just in: some members of the Tea Party movement have said racist things in public, and displayed racist slogans and images at public events. This is apparently completely acceptable in conservative circles. What's not acceptable, it seems, is pointing out the public racism when it happens.

A dustup between the NAACP and the Tea Party movement throws the racist streak in modern conservatism into stark, ugly relief. It's the next chapter in a sordid tale that predates our Republic. But the good news? The Tea Party's visible virulence is proof that things are getting better.
