MIN READJun 21, 2021 | 09:00 GMT
In this episode of the RANE Insights podcast, RANE Founder David Lawrence speaks to Barry Meier, a former New York Times reporter and author of three books. His work has helped raise awareness of the roots of the opioid epidemic at the hands of Purdue Pharma as well as cherry-picked information of drug trial findings and tell the story of Robert Levinson, an American held hostage in Iran accused of spying.
In all of his work, Meier has worked to reveal unspoken truths. His latest book, Spooked: The Trump Dossier, Black Cube, and the Rise of Private Spies — shows how the rich and powerful use private spies, political operatives-for-hire and the press to spread their message.
