Catching Up With Gore Vidal
Since 2006, Truthdig has been proud to publish the essays of Gore Vidal. Below are some of his highlights.
Gore’s most controversial posting on Truthdig was his 2008 critique of Newsweek for going easy on his old nemesis, William F. Buckley, after the conservative’s death. It is titled appropriately enough “Gore Vidal Speaks Seriously Ill of the Dead.”
Below, Gore speaks with Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer about the 2006 election and themes that are, sadly, still relevant today.
