Conrad Black on his Book Collections and Book Collecting
The Biblio File hosted by Nigel Beale
Conrad Black - in full, Conrad Moffat Black, Lord Black of Crossharbour - was born in 1944, in Montreal. He is an author, columnist, historian, and businessman who built the third largest newspaper group in the world during the 1980s and 1990s. At its height the organization controlled nearly 250 newspapers including the London Daily Telegraph, the Fairfax Group in Australia, The Jerusalem Post, Southam Press in Canada, and the Chicago Sun-Times. Black studied history and political science at Carleton University in Ottawa, earned a law degree from Laval University in 1970, and a Masters degree in history from McGill University in 1973. For his thesis he wrote a biography of former Quebec premier Maurice Duplessis; published in 1977, it came to be considered a definitive work. He entered the newspaper business in 1967 as part owner of two small Quebec weeklies, on the way to establishing his media empire. He currently lives in Toronto with his wife Barbara Amiel. We met via Zoom to talk about his various book and model ship collections, Napoleon, Roosevelt, his collecting habits, and his long-term fulfilling relationship with books. First off however he vigorously defends himself against charges that were successfully levelled against him by U.S. federal prosecutors in the mid-2000s.
It appears the Dems won't get their coveted $15 minimum wage hike inside the latest stimulus bill -- for many small business owners, this comes as a relief. The measure was expected to damage the economy and, by the Congressional Budget Office's own predictions, would have cost the economy 1.4 million jobs. Nonetheless, extremists on the left have vowed to keep fighting. Media mogul Lord Conrad Black, the former owner of London's Daily Telegraph, tells Trish how he thinks the economy comes back. They also discuss everything from Dr. Seuss to the future of the Republican Party, including a possible Donald Trump run in 2024 and what that might mean for the country.

Conrad Black: ‘Great Trump War’ Will Continue, Regardless of Election Outcome 
American Thought Leaders
“It's a bit rich for the authors of all those colossal illegalities and improprieties to call upon President Trump to be a good sport when they just tried to steal his election.” In this episode, we sit down with media mogul Conrad Black, the former publisher of The London Daily Telegraph, The Spectator, The Chicago Sun-Times, and The Jerusalem Post. Black is also the author of authoritative biographies of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Richard Nixon, and, most recently, “Donald J. Trump: A President Like No Other.” Regardless of what the outcome of the election is, the “great Trump war” will continue, Black says. This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek. #trump #electionfraud #biden

On the season finale of the True North Speaker Series, True North’s Candice Malcolm is joined by the mighty Lord Conrad Black. Lord Black is an historian, author, businessman, media baron and member of the British House of Lords. Unlike almost every other political observer, Black took Trump seriously from Day One. Black recognized Trump’s unique ability to connect with disaffected voters and saw how he used the power of his celebrity to steamroll the opposition and pull off the politically impossible – being elected to the highest office with no prior political experience and without cow-towing to political correctness or the DC establishment. Candice and Lord Black discuss Trump's strengths and weaknesses, the media’s incessant dishonesty, the over-the-top and politicized COVID-19 reaction, plus Lord Black makes a bold prediction about the upcoming US election.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
US Election: PJ O’Rourke | Conrad Black | Tom Switzer
Centre for Independent Studies
All eyes are on America in the lead up to November 3. When the presidential race comes to an end one thing is certain, the US will be fractured.If Donald Trump is re-elected, outrage by left-wing political and media sophisticates will further alienate tens of millions of Americans who do not share their values. Yet, if Joe Biden wins, a display of anything other than humility would be equally alienating and would divide even more deeply a crisis-ridden nation.How has it come to this? What is the likely path the US will take, both at home and abroad, once the pandemic passes? Are these two old men really the best America has to offer? On Thursday, 1 October at 9 am we hosted a US Election election special with PJ O’Rourke & Conrad Black to hear two strikingly different views of how the September 30 Presidential debate went down and which candidate they thought would, or should, win the 2020 US Presidential Election.
