Alternative Radio's David Barsamian will be speaking in Fort Collins
Terrorism, Propaganda & the Media
Don't miss this very special Salon with David Barsamian of Alternative Radio
Terrorism is the scourge of the era. It is a fearsome symbol conjuring images of nasty-looking, bearded men brandishing AK-47s. The media, taking their cue from Washington, focus only on the terrorism of official enemies such as ISIS, Syria & Iran. The notion that the U.S. and its allies engage in terrorism is simply not a topic for discussion. In the current discourse, the terrorism of the designated bad guys is magnified. The media fulfill their propaganda function by omitting and distorting U.S. policy and historical context.
David traveled to Istanbul for the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide on April 15th, and will include those thoughts as he speaks to us about the role of the media in today's turbulent world. Engaging Q&A will follow.
