Decoding U.S. Propaganda
Program #CHON231. Recorded in Cambridge, MA on September 25, 2014.
Who better to provide a glossary of propaganda than Noam Chomsky? He gives the actual definitions of such terms as crime, guilty, terror, international law and free elections. The media vacuum out background, context and history leaving people uninformed and bewildered, thus, easy prey to propaganda. But there have been some breakthroughs. For example on Palestine he says, “things have changed significantly over the past 10 or 15 years with regard to public opinion.” He talks about Egypt, Ukraine, the uses of NATO, Central America, and what is mistakenly called “anti-Americanism.” People around the world are in “opposition to brutal and destructive policies” of the U.S. “They don’t hate Americans; they hate American policy.” Interviewed by David Barsamian.
