He is an English writer and journalist and has primarily been based in Beirut for more than 30 years. Fisk holds more British and International Journalism awards than any other foreign correspondent. Fisk has said that journalism must, "challenge authority, all authority, especially so when governments and politicians take us to war."

Scott Horton Interviews Scott Horton, the international human rights lawyer on October 26, 2010
The other Scott Horton is also a professor and contributing editor at Harper's magazine. They discuss the maintenance of order and civility in Kyrgyzstan despite a rather chaotic election result, and the already infamous Frago 242 order (revealed by WikiLeaks) issued from high up the chain of command that demanded U.S. soldiers ignore the torture and human rights violations perpetrated by their Iraqi allies. They touch on Donald Rumsfeld's ignorance of the obligation of soldiers to prevent inhumane treatment.
