In this edition of The Debate, Press TV has conducted an interview with Brent Budowsky, a columnist with The Hill newspaper from Washington, and VT Editor Kevin Barrett, author and Middle East expert from Seattle, to discuss a United Nations official’s resignation following pressure to withdraw the report labeling Israel as an apartheid regime.
Brent Budowsky: “First of all, I have to say, the garbage I just heard out of the mouth of someone in Seattle is an embarrassment to Press TV and to serious discourse! …That kind of garbage has no place in any kind of debate…”
What triggered Budowsky’s meltdown?
Did he have good reason to be offended? Or is it just that he can’t handle the truth?
Watch The Debate and draw your own conclusions.
