Fred Friendly: Propaganda-Words and Actions, Contexts and Consequences

A panel of international journalists, politicos, academics and legal experts considered propaganda in the context of a hypothetical struggle between "Midrain" and "Southland." Where does point of view become propaganda? When does freedom of expression become incitement to genocide? Questions like these sparked crackling discussion with echoes of Rwanda, Bosnia, and the Congo; as 12 distinguished panelists including: Christiane Amanpour, former President Bush policy adviser Michael Gerson, and historian Steve Luckert, confront the contexts and consequences of contemporary propaganda. Presented by WNYC's Amy Eddings and moderated by NYU professor Arthur Miller, the panel of international journalists, politicos, academics and legal experts considered propaganda in the context of a hypothetical struggle between "Midrain" and "Southland." Positions that seemed clear in the abstract quickly become shaded by the realities of lives in the balance.
