Robert Scheer and Max Blumenthal: A Conversation
I listen to the conversation on truthdig between Robert Scheer and Max Blumenthal and think it is very interesting, as it explains a lot of Max Blumenthal's experiences while grwoing up and living in Washington DC with his parents Sidney and Jaqueline Blumenthal, He was a journalist, an advisor to Bill Clinton and confidant to Hillary Clinton, alos employed to the Clinton Foundation.
Max had grown up in very special surroundings in DC at a time, when I lived there too, so there are details in Max Blumenthals words, that speak to me. Max Blumenthal is a couple of years younger than my son, who lived in DC at that time and how can I say it ...a lot of what he talks about rings a bell, though of course just vaguely and coincidentically from the know-nothing foreigner/newcomer/immigrant angle.
If you are a follower and fan of the Grayzone, Aaron Maté's and Max Blumenthal's journalism, as I am, this conversation between the two, representing two different generations and each from their own place with regards to their relations and political places as Jewish journalists.
