A Tribute to Robert Parry: Independent Journalism at Its Best

Jim Naureckas
Journalism lost one of its most valuable investigators when Robert Parry died from pancreatic cancer on January 27, at the age of 68. He was the first reporter to reveal Oliver North’s operation in the White House basement (AP, 6/10/1985), and the co-author of the first report on Contra drug-smuggling (AP, 12/21/1985).

I’m heartbroken. Parry was my aegis when debating pseudoliberals on topics such as the US financed coup in Ukraine. I always looked forward to his slap-in-the-face exposure of US hegemony. RIP Bob. Say hello to Chalmers Johnson for me.

One our best has passed. A sad day.
