Description: 

Linda Michell of FAIR, West Coast, reports on the new office and KCRW coverage of the Gulf War. She then introduces Jeff Cohen, executive director of FAIR. He speaks on the officials lying and the press allowing them to get away with it. First, Clarence Thomas testified that he never discusses Roe vs. Wade and that Jay Parker was a paid lobbyist for South African government. Second, Robert Gates testimony before Congress that he did not remeber meetings with Iran-Contra teams, and the media labeled it "forgetfulness." Third, Presidential candidate David Duke is never challenged about discrimination of white people. He compares this to the treatment of Jessie Jackson in the 1988 election. He calls for a restructuring of the media coverage of the elections. The people must stay involved, and dog the mainstream media for mistakes in coverage.|OFFICIALS LIE WHILE THE MEDIA LOOKS ON / Jeff Cohen| introduced by Linda Mitchell. - SERIES: FAIR, 1991 - Linda Michell of FAIR, west coas, reports on the new office and KCRW coverage of the Gulf War.
