Media scholar Mark Crispin Miller explores how the government--aided by the corporate media--molds public opinion through massive and unceasing campaigns of propaganda. This propaganda manufactures widespread public consent for imperialism, neoliberal economic policies, and military adventures abroad.

In a brief introduction, KD analyzes the propaganda saturating a New York Times "news" article on Venezuela (March 13, 2019).

Mark Crispin Miller spoke with host Abby Martin on the TeleSUR program The Empire Files in June 2016. I have edited and condensed the audio.

Past installments of The Empire Files are available at (video) and (audio). This program is now shut down owing to U.S. economic sanctions against Venezuela, where the TeleSUR network is based.
