This is especially irresponsible given the history of at least one false flag attack — documented by the Pulitzer-prize winning legendary investigative reporter Seymour Hersh — by anti-government forces in Syria to falsely accuse the Syrian government. (See “Hersh's Big Scoop: Bad Intel Behind Trump'sテδづつ...
More than three decades after his visit, Seymour M. Hersh, who wrote the book "The Dark Side of Camelot" interviewed former Secret Service agent Larry Newman, who told of a local sheriff bringing two prostitutes to Kennedy's suite -- and warning that if they ever spoke of the incident they would go to aテδづつ...

In Reporter (Knopf, June), investigative journalist Hersh recalls covering huge stories, from the Vietnam War's My Lai massacre to the present-day “war on terror.” What's the hardest story you ever had to report? The hardest emotionally was My Lai. I was dealing with people doing horrible things, killingテδづつ...
Praise be to God that the ugly war in Syria seems to be nearing its end. The secular, Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad has recently liberated the last major urban stronghold of the ISIS and Al-Qaeda affiliated rebels in Eastern Ghouta. All that being said, it's more than a little suspect that mainstreamテδづつ...
Fifty years ago this weekend, the focus of the Vietnam war dramatically changed. Many Americans were skeptical of why the war was necessary. There were scattered reports of American soldiers killing innocent civilians. But some would argue bad things can happen during wartime, and that's the price aテδづつ...
After reading John McCain's commentary (Roundup, Jan. 23) I have to say — what a bunch of crap. He talks of freedom of the press as though it exists in a controlled main stream media this owned by six corporations that follow a far-left globalist agenda of propaganda for more wars that only benefit theテδづつ...

The U.S. military attempted to cover-up what happened and would have succeeded but for the persistence of a young reporter, Seymour Hersh. The soldiers raped the women, mutilated their bodies and torched their houses One U.S. soldier said he was ordered to “kill anything that breathed.” During theテδづつ...
The US journalist who broke the My Lai massacre story 50 years ago says the horror of what happened still makes him "teary". On March 16, 1968 US soldiers massacred more than 500 men, women and children in the Vietnamese village of My Lai. The investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, acting on aテδづつ...
Investigative Journalist - Seymour Hersh. HARDtalk. Are journalists still able to tell the truth to power? On March 16th 1968 US soldiers committed a war crime during the Vietnam war. More than 500 men, women and children were systematically slaughtered in the village of May Lai. The terrible truth ...
12, 1969: Story broken by Seymour Hersh in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Nov. 26, 1969: Lt. Gen. William Peers tasked with another Army investigation. March 14, 1970: Report by Peers completed. March 29, 1971: Calley found guilty of premeditated murder of 22 civilians, is sentenced to life. He serves 3テδづつ...
He was either a casualty of a sadistic LSD experiment by the U.S. government, or — as wily investigative journalist Seymour Hersh insists — of an outright execution. (The film reports out Hersh's incendiary thesis, and gives it credence.) Is the U.S. under President Trump becoming Russia, its terrified andテδづつ...
The larger papers also had the time and budget for investigative pieces where resolute reporters were encouraged to “scoop” stories and sniff out scandal and corruption. I remember journalists like Jimmy Breslin, David Brinkley, Margaret Bourke-White, Seymour Hersh and Bill Moyers, just to name a few.
The history of My Lai was first chronicled by investigative journalist Seymour Hersh in a series of news articles forming the basis of his 1970 book My Lai 4: A Report on the Massacre and its Aftermath, for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting.

This happened to Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh when two of his articles on the war in Syria in the last four years could not find a publisher in the U.S. — not even his “own,” The New Yorker. One of these articles, “Whose Sarin?” was finally published in the Dec. 19, 2013, issue of the London Reviewテδづつ...
Seymour Hersh, then a relentless freelance reporter, broke the story after tracking down and interviewing soldiers, including Calley, about the mass killing.

In late November 2001, according to Seymour M.

His work inspired generations of journalists, but it's possible you've rarely encountered his writing, or have simply never heard of him.

When Eric is talking (or the reporter Seymour Hersh or several other interviewees), Wormwood proves gripping and upsetting, even despairing.

Journalist Seymour Hersh has given us good reason to believe what many have long suspected: that the “hacking” of the Democratic National Committee, which supposedly delivered the White House to Donald Trump, was an inside job. In a recorded phone conversation (here's a transcript) with Edテδづつ...
The U.S. cruise missile attack on a Syrian air base, in retaliation for what the White House said was a deadly nerve agent attack carried out by the Syrian government, proved to be a rare moment of glory in Donald Trump's embattled presidency. The president basked in praise from usually critical Democratsテδづつ...

In 2015, Seymour Hersh published “The Killing of Osama bin Laden” in the London Review of Books. The title couldn't be more straightforward.

What is certain here is uncertainty: maybe it's true, maybe it's not.
