Robert Fisk 'Gutsy and admired' VideoRobert Fisk v Mark Dooley - Late Late Show 2005 - IRAQ/USA debate So wird schnell klar: Fisk übertreibt nicht, er geht tatsächlich dorthin, wo es riskant wird. Spearheaded by Make My Day Sprüche and profoundly experienced correspondents such as Patrick Cockburn, Robert Fisk, Kim Senguptaour coverage has led the world in its fearlessness and insight. Während des ersten Golfkrieges, über den er Der Hundeprofi Vox Bagdad berichtete, kritisierte er mehrere andere Korrespondenten massiv, indem er ihnen vorwarf, den Konflikt nur von ihren Hotelräumen aus oder eingebettet beim britischen oder US-Militär zu verfolgen.
His painful, deeply serious question about the inevitability of war sets the tone of this documentary about his career, directed by Yung Chang.
Fisk was known for his criticism of the foreign policy of the United States , particularly their involvement in the wars in Afghanistan and the Middle East.
The Independent , for whom he wrote between and his death, praised him as being "renowned for his courage in questioning official narratives from governments".
The BBC's Jeremy Bowen also praised him following his death and noted the controversy Fisk drew for his "sharp criticism of the US and Israel, and of Western foreign policy".
Bowen described himself as an admirer who would miss Fisk's "guts and his appetite for the fight".
Similarly, Patrick Cockburn , responding to criticisms raised in obituaries said "Derring-do in times of war usually gets good notices from the press and from public opinion, but moral endurance is a much rarer commodity, when the plaudits are replaced by abuse, often from people who see a world divided between devils and angels and denounce anybody reporting less than angelic behaviour on the part of the latter for being secret sympathisers with the devil.
Real journalism is a simple business, but exceptionally difficult to do well. Its purpose is to find out significant news as fast as possible, disregard all efforts by governments, armies and media to suppress it, and pass that information on to the public so they can better judge what is happening in the world around them.
This is what Robert did and did it better than anybody else. Fisk described himself as a pacifist and non-voter. He quoted, with approval, the words of Israeli journalist Amira Hass : "There is a misconception that journalists can be objective.
What journalism is really about is to monitor power and the centres of power. For some reason, I had become possessed of the belief that the blame for our failure as journalists to report the Middle East with any sense of moral passion or indignation lay in the way that we as journalists were trained.
If reporters don't do that then they are out of their minds. On coverage of foreign reporting, he observed in an interview with Harry Kreisler at the Institute of International Studies, UC Berkeley in "the French are very good at getting to the scene and reporting the reality.
I know France doesn't have a very clean reputation in American politics at the moment but by goodness, they've got good journalists.
You read a translation of Liberacion [ sic ], Figero [ sic ], Le Monde — they've got it. I work a lot with French — I normally work on my own, but if I work with other reporters, I tend to report with Italians or the French because, my goodness, they get to the war front.
When he spoke on "Lies, Misreporting, and Catastrophe in the Middle East" at the First Congregational Church of Berkeley on 22 September , he stated, "I think it is the duty of a foreign correspondent to be neutral and unbiased on the side of those who suffer, whoever they may be.
In the space of just seventeen months, they created the borders of Northern Ireland , Yugoslavia and most of the Middle East.
And I have spent my entire career—in Belfast and Sarajevo , in Beirut and Baghdad —watching the people within those borders burn.
Fisk wrote extensively about the Armenian Genocide of and supported moves to persuade the Turkish Government to acknowledge it. For Remembrance Day in , Fisk wrote that his father "old Bill Fisk became very ruminative about the Great War.
He learned that Haig had lied, that he himself had fought for a world that betrayed him, that 20, British dead on the first day of the Somme — which he mercifully avoided because his first regiment, the Cheshires, sent him to Dublin and Cork to deal with another "problem" — was a trashing of human life.
In hospital and recovering from cancer, I asked him once why the Great War was fought. Then he stopped wearing his poppy. I asked him why, and he said that he didn't want to see 'so many damn fools' wearing it.
Why do we pay homage to the dead but ignore the lessons of their war? He fought for his country and then, unafraid, he threw his poppy away.
Television celebrities do not have to fight for their country — yet they do not even have the guts to break this fake conformity and toss their sordid poppies in the office waste paper bin.
Fisk married American-born journalist Lara Marlowe in They divorced in They had no children. On settling down, he wrote in "I told the journalism students there [at City, University of London] that when I saw families walking happily in London or Paris, I wondered whether I had not missed out on life, that perhaps comparative safety and security with nothing more than the mortgage to worry about was preferable to the existence I had chosen for myself.
A friend of my father's once said I had enjoyed the privilege of seeing things that no other man had seen. But after a flood of questions from students in Sydney about suffering in the Middle East, I began to wonder if my privilege had not also been my curse.
On 30 October , Fisk died aged 74 at St Vincent's University Hospital in Dublin , Ireland, after a suspected stroke. I pay warmest tribute to one of the last great reporters.
The weasel word 'controversial' appears in even his own paper, The Independent , whose pages he honoured.
He went against the grain and told the truth, spectacularly. Journalism has lost the bravest. Covering wars in the Balkans, Middle East and North Africa for UK newspapers over five decades, Fisk was described by the New York Times, in , as "probably the most famous foreign correspondent in Britain".
Born in Maidstone, Kent in , he later took Irish citizenship and had a home in Dalkey outside the capital Dublin.
Irish President Michael D Higgins has expressed his "great sadness" about Fisk's death on Sunday. After starting his career at the Sunday Express, Fisk moved to Belfast in to cover the Troubles as Northern Ireland correspondent for the Times.
He became the paper's Middle East correspondent in Based in Beirut, he reported on the civil war in Lebanon, as well as the Iranian Revolution in , the Soviet war in Afghanistan and the Iran-Iraq War.
