Media Myths and U.S. Foreign Policy
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.
