Eric welcomes Dan Kovalik to the program for Part I of their conversation. They explore the role of NPR, Democracy Now, and other so-called “Left” media outlets and their role in selling war to the Left. Eric and Dan discuss the Orwellian nature of “humanitarian war” and the way in which much of the Left has been duped into being warmongers. They also provide interesting insight into how human rights are used as a cover for some of the worst atrocities in the world today.
