Afghanistan Journalist Under Fire

VIDEO: How The Corporate Media Beats The Drums Of War, Smears Alternative Voices

This speech was delivered by Mnar Muhawesh, editor-in-chief of MintPress News, in Minneapolis, MN on Sept. 10, 2014. Ms. Muhawesh was invited by peace advocacy group Mothers Against Military Madness to bring attention to how the media manipulates conflict narratives to drive public support for war and how alternative voices and independent journalism are smeared to discredit them to ensure control over US foreign policy narratives.
