Next Week’s Show
Donald Trump’s Middle East. We’ll broadcast from the Gulf emirate of Qatar. Our guests will include syndicated columnist Rami Khouri, Mehran Kamrava of Georgetown Univ. Qatar, and Al Jazeera English Syria correspondent Zeina Khodr.
The Program
America is more divided than at any time in modern history. Red & blue; rich & poor; black & white; immigrant & long-time citizen. The election of President Donald Trump brought these divisions into sharp relief. It is also fundamentally altering America’s relationship with the world.

Broadcasting from the “blue states” of the Pacific Northwest, American Fault/Lines, hosted by award-winning journalist Lawrence Pintak, will bring a perspective that breaks free of both the NY-Washington corridor and the dominant ethos of conservative talk radio.

The program will take a provocative approach to the most divisive issues of day, examining the fissures in U.S. society and global relations through intelligent, fact-based interviews with guests who are not “the usual suspects,” and who can shed light on the roots of division, the context of the debate, and the possible solutions.

One-hour weekly. Single-topic. The goal is to generate discussion and debate while seeking to understand the seminal issues shaping our society. No shouting matches, no dismissing unpopular opinions. But no BS either. A combination of one-on-one interviews, discussions with multiple guests, and panels of analysts, domestic and foreign.

The Host
Lawrence Pintak is an award-winning former CBS News Middle East correspondent, Senior Non-Resident Fellow at The Atlantic Council, and contributor to ForeignPolicy.com. He was founding dean of the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University (2009-2016).
Read his articles at www.pintak.com. His books include Reflections in a Bloodshot Lens: America, Islam & the War of Ideas; Islam for Journalists (and Everyone Else); The New Arab Journalist; and Seeds of Hate: How America’s Flawed Middle East Policy Ignited the Jihad. He holds a PhD in Islamic Studies from the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David.
Pintak is currently on sabbatical until the fall of 2017.
