Wednesday March 4th, 8:35-9:30am: Noam Chomsky, "Decoding Propaganda"
In September 2014, David Barsamian interviewed Noam Chomsky about how 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 dont hate Americans; they hate American policy."
A 2-CD set of the complete interview is available for a $60 donation to KGNU. Click here to make a donation and get the set as a thank-you gift.
