Bob Parry has died. He was a giant… The reporter who uncovered the Iran-Contra scandal. Instead of a Pulitzer, he was fired by the AP.

And, 30 years ago, he convinced me to take on two unknown and dangerous brothers: the Kochs. He exposed them in Nation Magazine — which he told me led Nation to fire him.
In the end, he simply printed his own reports in his Consortium News.
He received high accolades abroad — including Britain’s Martha Gellhorn award. But this great American reporter was a prophet outcast in his own land.
