Eduardo Cohen, lecturer, investigative journalist, and long-time observer of U.S. policy and the discrepancy between on-the-ground reality and media coverage of events, will present critical analysis of what he calls "monumental journalistic failure" in coverage of U.S. Middle East policy, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the manufactured threat of Iran, and the War on Terror. Cohen, the host and producer of "The Other Americas Radio Journal," has spent years witnessing U.S. policy first-hand, from Vietnam to Central America and most recently in the Middle East. This perspective, combined with his sharp powers of observation, provides a unique and insightful analysis, much of which you will hear nowhere else.
Light refreshments will be served.
