His son, Nat, posted an eulogy on his work:
Nat Parry: Robert Parry's legacy and the future of Consortium News
Also a very moving tribute from Caitlin Johnstone:Nat Parry wrote: Reviewing these journalistic achievements, it becomes clear that there are few stories that have slipped under Consortiumnews.comâ€™s radar, and that the historical record is far more complete thanks to this website and Bobâ€™s old-fashioned approach to journalism.
But besides this deeply held commitment to independent journalism, it should also be recalled that, ultimately, Bob was motivated by a concern over the future of life on Earth. As someone who grew up at the height of the Cold War, he understood the dangers of allowing tensions and hysteria to spiral out of control, especially in a world such as ours with enough nuclear weapons to wipe out all life on the planet many times over.
As the United States continues down the path of a New Cold War, my dad would be pleased to know that he has such committed contributors who will enable the site to remain the indispensable home for independent journalism that it has become, and continue to push back on false narratives that threaten our very survival.
