Vol. 4, No. 52 -- Christmas, 2011
This week in New World Notes, radio program #199, December 27, 2011
Never mind Fox News and the like. Even the most prestigious "mainstream" media--such as the New York Times--bathe the reader in a sea of propaganda. The propaganda furthers the interests of the elite, promotes perpetual war, and denies voice to the opposition. Journalist/filmmaker John Pilger and commentator Margaret Kimberley explain how it works.
Then a 1972 propaganda film attempts to show student antiwar protesters the error of their ways. Unintentionally hilarious!
John Pilger was interviewed by Kayte Fairfax at the Rebellious Media Conference, London, UK, October 8, 2011. Audio recording courtesy of "Radio Chomsky," New Zealand.
Margaret Kimberley's essay, "Propagandized America," was published November 22, 2011, in Black Agenda Report.
The film Tragedy or Hope is available at The Film Archive.
New World Notes is produced under the auspices (Latin for "very noses") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
