Lobe on Neocons and Public Diplomacy
Boston Review on Iran
Veteran journalist and neocon watcher, Jim Lobe points out that as the Neoconservatives have lost direct political power, they have emerged in key positions in public diplomacy– especially Radio Farda (‘Radio Marti’ for Iran) and al-Hurra (the US-owned Arabic satellite tv channel that is struggling with viewership).
