* When President Barack Obama‘s “green jobs czar,” Van Jones, resigned in 2009 amid controversy over the fact that he had once signed a “9/11 Truth Statement” suggesting that the Bush-Cheney administration had either orchestrated the 9/11 attacks or allowed them to happen, Corn lamented that “the federal government will now be spending about $80 billion on green economy initiatives without the guiding hand of one of the most knowledgeable experts in this field … a public servant who was uniquely qualified to help move the country in the right direction.”
* In April 2013, Corn sparked controversy by releasing an illegally-obtained audio recording (along with a complete transcript) of a private strategy meeting wherein Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his staff had discussed ways to discredit a possible campaign opponent, actress Ashley Judd. The recording was made by Curtis Morrison, a former volunteer for the left-wing SuperPAC, Progress Kentucky, which was created to oppose McConnell’s re-election. Morrison admitted to having recorded the meeting with a pocket camera from outside McConnell’s office door.
* Over the years, Corn’s writings have appeared in such publications as the Washington Post, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Philadelphia Inquirer,Boston Globe, Newsday, New Republic, Washington Monthly, LA Weekly,Village Voice, The Independent, Elle, Slate, Salon, TomPaine.com,AlterNet.org, and Huffington Post.
* Corn has done commentaries for National Public Radio,BBC Radio, CBC Radio, and Pacifica Radio. And he has appeared in a few films produced by documentary propagandist Robert Greenwald. For example, he played prominent roles in Greenwald’s Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War (2003); The World According to Bush (2004); and Uncovered: The War on Iraq (2004).
* In September 2003, Corn published The Lies of George W. Bush: Mastering the Politics of Deception. In 2006 he co-authored (with Michael Isikoff) Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War. And in March 2012, Corn published Showdown: The Inside Story of How Obama Fought Back Against Boehner, Cantor, and the Tea Party.
