Learn how media conditions Americans to go to war

Dear Editor,

President Bush has a monotone, one-note drumbeat. Terrorists hate us and they are evil; therefore, we must bomb them out of existence. On Friday, June 28, at 7 p.m., David Barsamian, a national expert on the media, will speak at the Glenwood Springs High School about how the corporate-controlled media edits the news to produce a group think mentality that builds consensus for Bush’s foreign policy. For entertainment value and corporate profit, the mainstream news, national and local, ignores the political dimensions of the terrorist problem and the United States’ role in promoting terrorism.

Come listen to David Barsamian speak on the media, terrorism and propaganda to learn how Americans are indoctrinated to go to war.
