Our weekly documentary screening curated by our editorial team at 21WIRE.
NOTE: Although this film focuses a lot on the Clinton and Bush presidencies, this same system has continued and taken to an even higher level of dark arts by the Obama Administration, and the both UK’s Blair and Cameron governments.
“This film explores the evolution of propaganda and public relations in the United States, with an emphasis on the ‘elitist theory of democracy’ and the relationship between war, propaganda and class. Includes original interviews with a number of dissident scholars including Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Michael Parenti, Peter Phillips (“Project Censored”), John Stauber (“PR Watch”), Christopher Simpson (“The Science of Coercion”) and others.”
