I had sent a previous, much more abrasive, version of this letter to Emily Harris but I did not hear back. The part that personally bothers me the most is that these kinds of shows are aired on KQED, a channel considered “liberal” by most people in the US. It’s been a while now, but a few years ago, during the negotiations for the Iran nuclear power plan, I listened to a couple of shows where they were interviewing people in the military who were talking about a war to Iran as a normal, viable solution. The interviewer seemed perfectly at ease. No questions were asked about the Israeli nuclear bombs, nor any questions about the history of US intervention in the Middle East and their disastrous consequences.
