John Pilger is my hero!! He is one of the most iconic journalists of the 20th/21st century....

I've been following him for 15 years and I love his work.

He is, but then I am a liberal, and although I may not completely agree with his more socialist views, I find him to be extremely intelligent. He doesn't have views which are entirely predictable, because he actually thinks for himself. And in this particular interview I agree with almost everything he says. I also like Christopher Hitchens, and he was a Marxist.
You must love Bill Maher then!

I admire him, I don't love him though. I probably agree with most of his views, but he's no genius.

He does always look a bit too pleased with himself to be honest.


What were your opinions on Sanders?

I thought he was the best candidate, honest, smart, and he had a nice temperament. I didn't agree with him on everything. I'm liberal, but I'm not particularly left wing. But left wing in America is a very different thing to left wing here, because America is so capitalist. Obviously having a public healthcare system is essential if you want to consider your society to be civilised.

John Pilger is a left-wing, West-hating idiot. Why should anyone watch him?

I mostly like Pilger, and he's talking sense here, though my view of him is still somewhat tarnished by him jumping on the reprehensible Rwanda & Bosnia apologist bandwagon.
