(I hated Robert Parry but like any number of journalists he had an 
honorable and distinguished career before Syria.)

Robert Parry, editor and publisher of Consortiumnews.com, died 
peacefully Saturday evening. In this tribute, his son Nat Parry 
describes Robert’s unwavering commitment to independent journalism.

Robert Parry, 1949-2018

By Nat Parry

It is with a heavy heart that we inform Consortiumnews readers that 
Editor Robert Parry has passed away. As regular readers know, Robert (or 
Bob, as he was known to friends and family) suffered a stroke in 
December, which – despite his own speculation that it may have been 
brought on by the stress of covering Washington politics – was the 
result of undiagnosed pancreatic cancer that he had been unknowingly 
living with for the past 4-5 years.
