Modern day propaganda

Many people have become increasingly skeptical of half-truths in the mainstream media that help to promote foreign policy objectives abroad.

When alternative narratives are brought to our attention, the only option for the establishment is to play the man and not the ball, and target the people providing a different point of view.

So, as public trust wanes and more critical questions are being asked about the real agenda around foreign intervention, we ask: Are we becoming more aware of modern-day propaganda?

Host Ross Ashcroft is joined by someone who knows this strategy well – because he's been on the receiving end of it – Professor Piers Robinson, chair in Politics, Society and Political Journalism at the University of Sheffield; and Dr Florian Zollmann, author of ‘Media, Propaganda and the Politics of Intervention.’
