HeadlineApr 09, 2021

Longtime reporter and author Reese Erlich has died after a battle with prostate cancer. He co-authored the best-selling book “Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn’t Tell You.” He also published books on U.S. foreign policy in Iran, Cuba and Syria. In his final column for The Progressive, published just two weeks ago, Erlich wrote, “I hope I’ve helped explain some complicated world issues you might not otherwise have understood. I hope the activism earlier in my life and my writing and speeches later have helped bring about progressive change.” Click here to see our interviews with Reese Erlich.
