Pulitzer Prize winner Chris Hedges was a foreign correspondent for The New York Times for fifteen years until he was reprimanded for denouncing President George W. Bush’s invasion of Iraq. Now he’s a columnist, senior fellow at The Nation Institute, and has taught at Columbia, New York and Princeton universities. In his most recent book, The World As It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress, Hedges warns, “Brace yourself. The American Empire is over. And the descent is going to be horrifying.”
Then, Bob chats with old friend James Cromwell who is currently starring in the surprise hit silent film and Oscar favorite, The Artist. [Broadcast Date: February 23, 2012]
