To Tell the Truth: The Life of a Foreign Correspondent with Lewis Simons.

Offered by Chevy Chase at Home. What is it like to be a foreign correspondent, covering the most dramatic stories in some of the world’s most hostile places? How—and why—has the state of the American press changed in the last 20 years and what are the challenges facing journalists today? Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lewis M. Simons will address these questions and more.

Simons began his career in 1967 as a foreign correspondent for The Associated Press, at the height of the Vietnam War. He went on to international postings for The Washington Post, Time Magazine, and Knight-Ridder Newspapers. Simons has been a foreign correspondent and investigative journalist for half a century, reporting throughout Asia and the Middle East. He covered the Vietnam War, opened the world's eyes to the terror in Tiananmen Square, was expelled from India for revealing Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s abuses and saved the life of a teen-aged Tibetan monk.
