Hunter S. Thompson’s Famous 9/11 Interview

Hunter S. Thompson talking with Mick O’Regan from Radio National’s Media Report

This interview had a profound impact on me when I first heard it years ago. It was conducted just before the 1 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks and less than a year before the U.S. invasion of Iraq. Hunter publicly voices his skepticism of the official 9/11 story here at a time when doing so was extremely uncommon, and he expresses his bleak view of the future of U.S. journalism. Looking back now, as we approach the 8th anniversary of the attacks, it’s incredible how far the alternative media has come since then.
