Antiwar Radio: Lawrence Pintak

Lawrence Pintak, the founding dean of The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University, discusses the Al Jazeera revolution in Arabic language media, breaking away from state propaganda and censorship; how Facebook and other social media are mostly the tools of youth, while older protesters in Egypt (and elsewhere) heavily rely on television – and thus Al Jazeera; how incessant Islamofascist fearmongers create the clash of civilizations they warn about; and Obama’s opportunity to take actions consistent with US rhetoric about promoting democracy abroad.
