Seymour Hersh is an advocacy journalist with a "long history of visceral anti-Americanism, which resonates with the journalistic elite."  Hersch is a regular contributor to the liberal magazine the New Yorker.
He is perhaps best known for covering the My Lai incident during the Vietnam war as well as the US prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib in Iraq.
He has won a Pulitzer prize in addition to various other awards for his work.
In 2015, Hersh wrote an article for the London Review of Books alleging that Barack Obama had lied about the circumstances surrounding the killing of Osama Bin Laden.
