Military dictatorship of the media / Dennis Bernstein.

Program Title:
Military dictatorship of the media / Dennis Bernstein.
PRA Archive #: 
KZ1620
Description: 

Dennis Bernstein examines te power of information as witnessed by the TV war in the Gulf. Main stream media ignored civilian casualties, the killing of over 100,000 Iraqi soldiers, or the failure of United States technologies. The potential positive power in information is demonstrated by the impact of the video of Rodney King being beaten by members of the Los Angeles Police Department. Pacifica News, continues Bernstein, uncovered a plan for a Kuwait Marshall Plan, and predicted the torture of pro-democracy forces in Kuwait. He praises the work of former attorney general Ramsey Clark, as well as filmmakers Jon Alpert and marion Dilelo for filming the reality of the Iraq war, but goes on to point out how their work was never used by a censoring media.|MILITARY DICTATORSHIP OF THE MEDIA / Dennis Bernstein.
