A Sure-Fire Guest for Your Show
Dear host or producer,
Looking for a guest who will stimulate robust discussion and draw an audience? We suggest Mark Weber, an articulate and seasoned commentator on current affairs.
Weber tackles hot-button topics with informed, thoughtful and sometimes provocative insights. Long after even a brief appearance by him, talk show listeners have often kept calling in to comment and carry on the discussion.
He is used to fielding questions such as:
— How is America heading down the same path as other empires in history?
— Why do politicians of both major parties pander to the pro-Israel lobby?
— Why are US claims of support for democracy hypocritical and insincere?
— Why was World War II NOT the "good war"?
— What is the "big lie" about the Nine Eleven attacks?
— Why do so many people around the world distrust and hate the U.S.?
— How does the Holocaust remembrance campaign defame non-Jews?
— Why is the United States the only country that still supports Israel's occupation of Palestine and repression of its people?
