127. Allies and Enemies
The multi-faceted Michael Oren (member of the Knesset) joins Need to Know this week to discuss the Iran deal. Oren has written two great histories, and now a memoir of his time as Israel’s ambassador to the U.S., Ally. Mona and Jay are fans – with one caveat – that Jay raises. Still, an important man on a deadly serious subject.
Jay and Mona then welcome another historian, Ron Radosh, of PJ Media, who provides a teeth-grinding account of PBS’s decision to air an approving documentary about the Black Panthers. What can be done? Is there, perhaps, a Republican congress that can hold hearings or bring pressure to bear on taxpayer-funded PBS? Not saying they should pull the documentary – but there are other options. Do join us.
