Reagan's Third-World Reign of Terror
As the nation pays tribute to Ronald "Dutch" Reagan on the occasion of
the 100th anniversary of his birth, media coverage is every bit as
laudatory as when he turned 90. I wrote in 2001 about PBS's fawning
tributes on the Charlie Rose show and the Jim Lehrer NewsHour.
Then, as now, one of the most glaring omissions was the human cost of
his foreign policies.
