De-Manufacturing Consent- What It Means to Be an Authentic Journalist

Guillermo Jimenez Presents Journalist Bill Conroy

On this edition of De-Manufacturing Consent: Guillermo is joined by Bill Conroy, writer and investigative reporter for Narco News. For the last 10 years, Conroy has led a "double life" as a journalist — editor-in-chief of a conservative business journal in San Antonio, Texas, by day, and investigative reporter on the drug war beat for Narco News by night. Today, Conroy shares his story of a 20-year career in journalism, why he started writing for Narco News, why he resigned his position at the San Antonio Business Journal, his relationship with Gary Webb, and what it means to be an "authentic journalist."

We also discuss Conroy's latest article and how US counter-narcotics operations in Central America have led to a mass exodus of child refugees and caused the ensuing "immigration crisis" in the United States.

    I really enjoyed hearing Bill Conroy’s views on the Central American countries, particularly his theories on Honduras. Thank you to Guillermo Jimenez for inviting Bill Conroy, and I thought that Guillermo’s questions were excellent.
