A Journalist From Mars
Program #CHON172. Recorded in New York, NY on January 22, 2002.Recorded at FAIR's 15th anniversary celebration at New York's Town Hall. Introductions by FAIR founder Jeff Cohen and TV talk show host Donahue. In a great talk, Chomsky in his usual biting manner brings a Martian journalist to earth to report on the war on terrorism. The results are both illuminating and humorous. The Martian notices a prevalent media convention. It's only terrorism if they do it to us. When we do much worse it's not terrorism. The visitor from outer space also observes that while "enemy crimes are investigated with laser-like intensity, you never look at your own."
