Josh Rushing is the host of Al Jazeera's Fault Lines
- a fortnightly show that digs deeper into what is driving the big news stories of the day.
A 15-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps, he gained prominence in the major motion picture documentary Control Room
, which featured his struggles as the US military's lead spokesperson to the Arab world during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
As a long-form correspondent for Al Jazeera English, Josh Rushing has shot specials and documentaries all over the world - from Iraq to Colombia and Vietnam to North Dakota.
In SPIN: The Art of Selling War
, Rushing examined the truth behind the US' public relations campaign in the lead-up to the war in Iraq, uncovering how, since Vietnam, the American government has repeatedly utilised the art of 'spin' to make the case for war.
For his recent series, On War
, Josh travelled from the bomb-ridden Laos countryside to the jungles of Peru and the bustling centre of an arms sale in Jordan to present the personal stories of the individuals caught in the crossfire.
In June 2007, Rushing released his first book, Mission Al Jazeera: Build a Bridge, Seek the Truth, Change the World
