Kuhn, Robert Lawrence

Kuhn is the dude in this CCTV (offcial Chinese state television) segment who calls Richard Gage a conspiracy theorist.

 

 

Kuhn is an interesting character who has apparently made his living (and a good one) being a friend of the regime in China...

 

In the links below his biography of former Chinese president Jiang Zemin is denounced as semi-official propaganda by a reviewer in Foreign Affairs, to which Dr. Kuhn responds.

The Man Who Changed China, a state-sanctioned portrait of Jiang Zemin, reflects the image that China's new leaders want their people to see: pragmatic, moderate, and above politics. The vision, however, does not often match reality.

He also seems to have produced a show that aired on PBS at some point called "Closer to Truth"... Among his guests, none other than Michael Shermer! http://www.pbs.org/kcet/closertotruth/participants/index5.html#shermer
