"U.S. Media Coverage of Global Conflict: How Our Windows on the World Get Tinted Red-White-and-Blue," sponsored by the Center for Global Studies.
Media outlets based in the United States are responsible for conveying to us the vast majority of what we know – or think we know – about world events. But how reliable are the news reports, images, and analysis that we get from U.S. news media? And how does the coverage of conflicts around the world affect our attitudes toward war and the use of American military might? Journalist and author Norman Solomon, whose books include "War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death," will address the overt and subtle forms of media bias that pervade the U.S. media landscape. This event is free and open to the public.
