February 22, 2023

Ken Timmerman is an author and former foreign correspondent who was once held captive by the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 1982 during the First Lebanon War.

He’s also worked as a journalist in Egypt and Iraq. His newest book, “And the Rest is History, Tales of Hostages, Arms Dealers, Dirty Tricks and Spies”, is a biographical account of his experiences as a war correspondent in the Middle East.

In this week’s episode of The Honest Report, we sit down with Ken to discuss his own experiences, as well as his perspective on how journalism, and in particular war journalism in the Middle East, has changed in the last 40 years.
