American Empire & Corporate Media

Program #ARNA-JAJA001. Recorded in Taos, NM on April 11, 2003.

Hermann Goering, second in command to Hitler said, "Naturally, the common people don't want war. It is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along. The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." Today we see the patterns that Goering described replicated in the U.S. invasion of Iraq and the war on Terrorism. Corporate media has been instrumental in manufacturing consent for war. When it comes to the invasion of Iraq, U.S. public opinion is radically divergent from the rest of the world. MIT professor Noam Chomksy says that this can on be explained by a massive propaganda campaign. Interviewed by David Barsamian.
