Russ Baker:  Join Russ Baker for a frank discussion of problems with both purveyors of “fake news” and a conventional-media pack that too often eschews the responsibility to really dig for answers. Baker, a graduate of Columbia Journalism School, has written for The Nation, The New York Times, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Salon, Esquire, the Guardian, and the Village Voice, among others. He is author of the bestseller, Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, Americas’s Invisible Government and the Hidden History of the Last Fifty Years which the late Gore Vidal called “One of the most important books.” He is founder and editor-in-chief of WhoWhatWhy, a nonprofit, nonpartisan, publicly-funded news site that explores stories, topics and angles missed or ignored by the rest of the media. Bill Moyers said, “a lot of us look to Russ to tell us what we didn’t know.”
