War & the Media: The Battle for Public Perception Robin Andersen & Jeff Cohen

Media critics and analysts Andersen and Cohen will discuss the connections between the media and war and the challenges this presents for the left. They will explore how the selection of which stories are told and which are ignored helps justify past battles and ensure future wars as well as the ways new technologies have helped turn the nightly news and talk show into “infotainment.”

Robin Andersen is director of the Peace and Justice Studies Program at Fordham University and author of A Century of Media, A Century of War. Jeff Cohen is the founder of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) and author of Cable News Confidential: My Misadventures in Corporate Media, a memoir of his experiences as a pundit with FOX News, CNN and MSNBC.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
