This Week: Interview with Kati Marton, Author of “The Polk Conspiracy”

marton2This week on Dialogos Radio, the Dialogos Interview Series will be featuring a groundbreaking and exclusive interview on a topic which has rarely been discussed openly in Greece.  On our program this week, we will be interviewing longtime ABC News and National Public Radio journalist Kati Marton, author of “The Polk Conspiracy: Murder and Cover-Up in the Case of CBS News Correspondent George Polk.” This book presents the true story behind the murder of journalist George Polk in Greece in 1948, in the midst of the country’s civil war, and the cover-up which followed by the right-wing government of Greece at the time, with the full collaboration of the intelligence agencies of the United States and Britain.

This book was banned in Greece and has never circulated, and in this week’s interview, Marton will share more details about who George Polk was, why his reporting was considered troublesome in Greece, the United States, and in Britain, and she will reveal the true circumstances behind Polk’s murder and the subsequent cover-up which followed.  She will share many details from the investigation which she conducted, as well as explain why the book remains censored in Greece today.  Marton will also discuss the new release of “The Polk Conspiracy” as an e-book, as part of the “Forbidden Bookshelf” lakispapadopoulosseries.

In addition to this week’s interview, we will also feature our commentary of the week segment, as well as a special tribute to musician Lakis Papadopoulos.

Tune in for this exclusive interview, commentary, and music special, this week only on Dialogos Radio!

Our Investigative Series of Articles on the History of Corruption, Lawlessness, and Censorship in Greece’s Media

In 2001, 12 years before the forced shutdown of ERT, the Greek government sent riot police to forcefully shut down 66 independent radio stations in Athens.

In collaboration with Truthout, Dialogos Media is presenting its new, investigative series of articles which examine the long and troubled history of corruption, lawlessness, and censorship in Greece’s media landscape. This series of articles investigates, in depth, these longstanding trends in Greek media, a situation which has been worsening in recent years, in the midst of Greece’s severe economic and political crisis.

The portions of this investigative series of articles which have so far been published in Truthout include:

In addition, this series will be translated into French, with the following portions having been published so far:

The fifth installment of our investigative series was also featured by Greece’s “Kouti tis Pandoras” news website, while Michael Nevradakis, producer/host of Dialogos Radio, was quoted in a similar article on corruption and censorship in Greece’s media published by The Christian Science Monitor.

We are working on having the Greek version of this series published soon as well.
