Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson explains how astroturf, or fake grassroots movements funded by special interests manipulate media messages.
“a writer of rare skill”
The mainstream media provide information within a very narrow framework that serves to manufacture consent for government policies and stifle meaningful debate on important issues.
I provide analysis and commentary from outside the standard framework, challenging mainstream narratives, exposing government and media propaganda, and broadening the scope of the discussion.
I’m an independent political analyst, publisher and editor of Foreign Policy Journal, writing coach, and author.
My most recent book is Obstacle to Peace: The US Role in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. Sign up to read the entire first chapter for free at ObstacleToPeace.com.
