This is quite a good interview of a major writer who is not given much coverage in the media. I was almost saved by Cockburn's column "Beat the Devil" in the 80's, much the way he says in this video his father saved people.

It's very good for people to see Cockburn on film. For those who do manage to get a peek at his written work, it'll be plain that he's a tremendous prose stylist with robust views. What, however, seems to be occluded is the fact that Alexander is also a very funny, lively, sharp-witted and engaging speaker.
