Due to technical difficulties resulting from a severed high speed Internet cable, my interview with Diana West originally scheduled for Thursday Oct. 11 from 9-10 PM EDT has been rescheduled.
It will now take place on Thursday Oct. 18 from 9-10 PM EDT. At that time, my weekly series The Peter Barry Chowka Interview on The Hagmann Report will continue with its third installment as I welcome guest Diana West. The hour long conversation with Diana will be broadcast live in high definition video from 9-10 PM EDT on Thursday evening at HagmannReportLive dot com with the audio on Blog Talk Radio. A video podcast will be posted at YouTube following the live show. Audio podcasts will also be available at all of the usual platforms, including iTunes.
Ms. West is one of America’s most prolific, accomplished, and influential historians, authors, and journalists. She writes from a conservative point of view about a wide range of current affairs – in particular the under appreciated role of Communist infiltration and influence in the United States going back almost a century. The high quality of her research and the originality of her writing have been matched by a courageous attitude in the face of criticism from both the left and from some quarters on the conservative right.
For the past fifteen years, Diana West has written a nationally-syndicated weekly column published in scores of major newspapers around the country. A 716-page book, No Fear: Selected Columns from America’s Most Politically Incorrect Journalist, featuring some of her best columns was published in 2013. Diana West’s author’s page at Amazon is here. In addition to her prolific output online and in print, she also makes frequent guest appearances on national television and does a number of public speaking engagements. Videos of many of her presentations and media appearances are available on YouTube and C-SPAN.
Diana West’s two major books The Death of the Grown-Up (2008) and American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character (2013) – both of them still in print – broke major new ground in reevaluating contemporary history. Each of them provoked considerable and lively dialogue and debate.
Diana West’s Web site, dianawest.net, is highly recommended. A page there features her extensive biography. West’s very active Twitter account is twitter.com/diana_west_ and it is also highly recommended.
In recent weeks, Diana West has contributed to The Epoch Times and her latest article there, “A Short, Communist History of ‘McCarthyism,” is especially appropriate to our discussion on The Hagmann Report Thursday evening Oct. 18.
