American journalist and author of "Pinochet and Me," 2001. A radical anarchist as a teenager in the ’60s, Cooper’s career in journalism began in 1966 when he founded and edited an underground newspaper while attending high school in Los Angeles. He entered California State University but was kicked out by 1971. Proceeding to Chile, Cooper got a job working in the press office of Chilean President Salvador Allende. He worked as an interpreter for Allende but was away from the capital at the time of Pinochet’s political coup, 9/11/1973.
From then, he began traveling the world as a freelance journalist, covering stories on politics and culture. From 1980-83, he worked as news and public affairs director for a radio station in Los Angeles. He has won numerous journalism awards, and an anthology of his work, "Roll Over Che Guevara: Travels of a Radical Reporter," was published in 1994. Ironically, he returned to California State University where he taught in the journalism department. By 2000, he was working as a radio commentator and still making political waves, pushing to have Henry Kissinger indicted for war crimes due to his involvement in the bombings in Cambodia.
