Another in our series of classic talks by Progressive political scientist Michael Parenti.  This one--one of his best--dates from 1997.
Parenti demolishes the myth of "the liberal media."  With wit, humor, facts, and examples, he shows that the US news media are little more than the propaganda arm of the the most powerful corporations and the government.

Parenti spoke in Burlington, Vermont--at the same university that had fired him for his antiwar activism 25 years earlier.

Previously broadcast, in May 2015. MP3 files downloaded from the links, above, are identified as NWN #375 and 376.
