Media Myths and U.S. Foreign Policy

Program #PARM005. Recorded in Denver, CO on November 30, 1989.

Michael Parenti, in another of his brilliant lectures, discusses why media experts, commentators and columnists ignore or distort the connections between U.S. foreign policy and its interventions in the Third World. U.S. actions, invasions, coups, blockades, resource extraction, are invariably cloaked in the myths of benevolence and good intentions. Events are framed, packaged and presented to obscure reality.

Speaker(s):

Michael Parenti

Michael Parenti is a brilliant orator and one of this country's foremost independent political analysts. He has taught at major colleges and universities in the U.S. and abroad. He is the author of numerous books including Democracy for the Few, The Face of Imperialism and The Assassination of Julius Caesar.
