Program #PARM003. Recorded in Boulder, CO on August 16, 1988.
Michael Parenti says, “The first premise of propaganda in the United States today is that it doesn't exist, that there is no propaganda from the established media and from the government and that we have only ‘information.’ Propaganda is something that other people do.“ If you say that there is propaganda in the U.S. you are immediately marginalized and categorized as a “kook” with “a personal axe to grind.” He says, “The most effective propaganda is that which relies on framing rather than falsehood.” Parenti illustrates his analysis with examples from mainstream media reporting on Nicaragua, Cuba, Guatemala, El Salvador, Panama and Afghanistan. Interviewed by David Barsamian.
