Danny Schechter Was Our News Dissector

There was this news director on the coolest radio station in Boston, WBCN-FM, who started his daily show with the announcement, “This is Danny Schechter, your news dissector.”

Dissecting the news was Schechter’s thing. He reported to listeners what was happening, then he explained why it was happening, and then he revealed why other media outlets did not tell the whole story. It was bold and daring, and the word of what Danny Schechter was doing on one progressive-rock station in Boston spread far and wide. “As ‘News Dissector’ on Boston radio,” recalled Chomsky, “Danny Schechter literally educated a generation.”

(*The Mike Rivero of the late sixties and early seventies , in that he kept it straight on what was really happening in Viet Nam , LBJ , and Nixon .
I'm late on this , just heard about Danny's passing . RIP Mr Schechter)
