The Strength of Western Propaganda | Alan MacLeod & Chris Jeffries | HR #209

Alan Macleod and Chris Jeffries discuss the biased coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by Western media and the role of propaganda in shaping public perception. They critique the use of the term “war” to describe the conflict, arguing that it’s not between two equal sides but rather decades of occupation leading to the displacement of nearly two million Palestinians. They also criticize the media’s acceptance of Israeli claims without reporting on the other side and the blame placed on Palestinian groups. They provide examples of false information spread through social media accounts and discuss the economic power of China and its impact on Southeast Asian countries. They argue that the United States may try to maintain control through military means as it economically declines. They also discuss the similarities in foreign policy decisions between Republican and Democratic presidents and the focus on Russian interference in the 2016 election. They express concern over the weaponization of social media and the potential for dangerous wars, such as the one being pushed by the influential group United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), which aims for regime change in Iran.
