I interview Mark Dharm Reese, a fascinating quixotic character who lost his job back in the Vietnam era when he suggested to the executive staff at the network that they should cover a news story about a demonstration at UC Berkeley where the demonstrators (students) were illegally sprayed with poison gas (tear gas?)…
The reaction of NBC at the time is indicative of the way the press has been able to decide which stories you hear and which you do not.
Mark has been a Pentagon consultant, Yale professor and a myriad other professions over his lifetime. He is clearly quite brilliant and brings forward a special tonic that he believes can change people’s lives.
