Jack is really a storyteller, international explorer, and humanitarian and everything else rolls out from there. As a writer, its what he does.  As a trial lawyer and trial skills teacher aroud the world, its his most important tool. As a former CIA officer, the only way to truly motivate people is to connect and to tell them a story that they can feel viscerally.  As a media analyst, what better way to make a point.  In the end, he tries to captivate his audience about the world and its people as much as he himself is captivated.

« Trump Believes Putin Over U.S. Intelligence | Main | Could President Trump Really "Go It Alone" Regarding NATO? »

With the Putin/Trump Summit Fast Approaching, I Sit Down with Russia's Channel 1.

After an extraordinarily contentious NATO Summit in which President Trump claimed that the Germany was a captive of Russia and apparently considered the idea to "go it alone", Trump will sit down with Russia's President Putin for a Summit on Monday. As a result, I received a call from Russian Television Station Channel 1 to talk about the summit. Channel 1 is the largest station in Russia and has somewhere in the neighborhood of 250 million viewers worldwide.  As a result, they are willing to throw their resources at stories.

This has been a really strange shoot. First of all, the interview felt far more like a 60 Minutes documentary. They filmed me walking into the office, up the stairs, at my desk, reading, shots of diplomas and CIA paraphernalia, and of course, a sit down interview.  In the end, it was really straight forward but at the same time, it was still pretty wild. I shold also be clear, I tore into the Russian government.  Of course, that did what they did.  This is what intelligence organizations do. 

There is common question I have to address when it comes to being interviewed by the Russians and it is this: Why? Simply, it depends on the topic. I'm happy to provide analysis when it comes to certain issues and the major topics and maybe even American concerns. However, the propaganda piece is always important to consider  On the other hand, American media itself has its problems and limitations.

Should be interesting.
