Dan and Joanne talk with American author and investigative journalist Ken Silverstein about power and influence peddling in Washington and the role of think tanks, NGOs and the media.
Ken is a DC-based investigative journalist, and creator of Washingtonbabylon.com. He is a contributing writer to VICE and columnist for the New York Observer. His stated goal for Washington Babylon was “to cover DC politicians and journalists like Hollywood celebrities — not the way they are worshiped by our current media masters.” He also wrote for Harpers Magazine, AP and LA Times.
