June 2014

I interviewed Jorge Lanata at his dowown Buenos Aires home and visited him on set for this article in Monocle magazine. Argentina’s most famous journalist and a bona fide celebrity, he has proved a constant thorn in the side of the government, a self-delcared crusader against corruption. But his own life has proved no less colourful, from a cocaine addiction to serious health problems via a switching of political affiliations that his detractors say has chipped away at his credibility. See the Current Affairs section in ‘Writing’ for the full article.
