Media Matters

President Rokke was by far the tallest of three college presidents to appear on the February 25 edition of “Speaking of College” on WLVT-TV (Channel 39). The others were Dorothy Gulbenkian Blaney of Cedar Crest College and Father Bernard O’Connor of DeSales University. They spoke about current trends in higher education. Dr. Rokke also was interviewed at length on WDIY-FM’s morning show February 26 about the U.S. Institute of Peace, of which he is a newly appointed member of the advisory council.

Gary Olson, professor of political science, wrote a strong antiwar statement for the March 27 op-ed page of the Morning Call.

He was then interviewed by the BBC World Service (which has a global audience of an estimated 150 million listeners) on April 11 about American policy in Iraq. The interview covered mainstream media coverage and the role of Persian Gulf oil. The linkup was arranged by WDIY-FM.

Gary has traveled widely in the Middle East and written or edited three books on international relations.
