  • Phillip Knightley on Harold Evans
    The Sunday Times had three fashion writers there three reporters from Insight and two cameramen and we got about 800 words But we had tried If a similar idea had come up the following week Evans would have said Go for it He carried everybody s loyalty because of his all round ability There wasn t a job in journalism he couldn t do A big story was Thalidomide If a section editor today went to the editor and said I want to do a story about a drug called Thalidomide It s marketed for pregnant women but we suspect about 8 000 children have been born deformed because it s not safe It s made by the biggest advertisers in our paper and they will fight all the way to prevent us from publishing It mightn t stand up in the end and if we include legal costs it might run to a couple of million what editor would say go ahead Phillip Knightley was a Sunday Times investigative journalist for 20 years Sir Harry Evans edited The Sunday Times from 1967 to 1981 Photo by Dan Callister Rex Features 498934E Sir Harold Evans New York 07 Oct 2004 Tagged as Harry Evans sunday times thalidomide Leave a Comment Name E mail Website Recent Comments Monica Weller on Turning the Philby Case on Its Head First casualty of war on The First Casualty 2004 Weekend Reads The MASTER CHEF that made modern restaurants possible Know Q Out on Why Wikileaks has changed journalism forever Gross comments Malcolm Redfellow s Home Service on The First Casualty 2004 John Knowlman on Turning the Philby Case on Its Head Categories Articles 62 Australia 7 journalism 22 miscellaneous 5 propaganda 15 review 10 spying 20 terrorism 8 war 2 Books 12 General 4

  • The Great War for Civilisation: the conquest of the Middle East, by Robert Fisk
    article which was headed A self loathing multi culturalist gets his due The Canadian American columnist the pugilistic Mark Steyn wrote of Fisk s account of his ordeal You d have to have a heart of stone not to weep with laughter It is not only Fisk s efforts to explain the Muslim side of events but to understand them that makes him enemies He is also seen as an apologist for the West s worst bogeyman Osama bin Laden Fisk has interviewed bin Laden three times once in the Sudan and twice in Afghanistan The two men got on well even though Fisk says that bin Laden tried to recruit him From Fisk s description of the meetings we get an impression of the man very different from the one generally disseminated in the West Fisk says bin Laden is devout shy thoughtful and like Bush and Blair possesses that dangerous quality total self conviction Fisk says bin Laden has an almost obsessive interest in history and believes that it is working against the United States for whom hatred lies like blanket over the Middle East Fisk got his break on The Times in its glory days when aged only 29 the then foreign editor Louis Heren offered him the Middle East as his beat He had the temperament for the job adventurous but not foolhardy There is a little Somme waiting for all innocent journalists He stayed with The Times for 18 years and says it was always loyal to him and that he had great trust in its editors Then in July 1988 a story he had written for The Times the results of his investigation into the shooting down of an Iranian Airbus by the American warship Vincennes killing 290 passengers and crew was cut and changed its meaning distorted by omission This I felt sure was the result of Murdoch s ownership of The Times Readers of The Times had been solemnly presented with a fraudulent version of the truth So he resigned and went to the work for The Independent where he remains today In the book he justifies his long explanation of why he left The Times by writing and any serious reporter has to agree with him When we journalists fail to get across the reality of events to our readers we have not only failed in our job we have also become a party to the events that we are supposed to be reporting Fisk s critics complain that he is not objective and detached This is right He is subjective and engaged What s wrong with that We are talking here about different views on what journalists especially foreign correspondents are for Fisk has thought a lot about this He writes I suppose in the end we journalists try or should try to be the first impartial witnesses to history If we have any reason for our existence the least must be our ability to report history as it happens
