A CONVERSATION WITH RICK CUMMINGS, POET AND MUSICIAN
THROUGH THE PRISM OF SPOKEN WORDS WE WILL REMEMBER
Rick Cummings has a talent to put in perspective the times we are living through. His knack of spoken word poetry elevates our examination of the tumultuous administrations of both George Bush and Donald trump. His craft navigates us through this history guiding us into the memory of events that stand out from the war in Iraq through the unfortunate administration of Donald Trump. His themes awaken our dulled minds and senses This is part one of the two part conversation that explores Rick's process and who has influenced him the most as an artist.
THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE
THE SCHOOL OF THE ASSASINS
A rare interview with veteran CBS news producer, Robert Richter, who produced Walter Cronkite's hourly news program for over fifteen years, and worked with Edward R. Murrow, Fred Friendly and Eric Severeid. Robert speaks with humor and sobriety about his longtime career of reporting the truth to the public. He discusses how he risked his own life to expose 'the school of the assasins', in Fort Benning, a terror training school in the U.S.. He reveals how the truth became obstructed in his reporting of the Vietnam War and Watergate scandals. It is fascinating to hear his views on 'truth in reporting' related to the distractions of Trump's 'fake news' campaign and how it relates to the Russia scandal.
