PRA Archive #: 

Dirty Truths / Michael Parenti. Parenti discusses the contents of his book, Dirty Truths. He begins with an introduction to the collection of essays, calling them "think pieces" rather than investigative journalism. His work deals with media, ideology, politics, ideas, class power, and ethnic life. Topics of discussion include child labor in Indonesia, and media conditioning. Parenti emphasizes that politics are reported to the public as though they are isolated experiences not related to the forces that perpetuate them and the larger pattern of social power. - Broadcast (Date not given)
