How well does the model apply to the British media?
Milan Rai, author of numerous books including “Chomsky's Politics” and editor of Peace News, tests the model in relation to Iraq, Iran and whatever happens to be front page news on the day of the talk.
Milan has been arrested over 20 times and imprisoned four times for his anti-war activities; he's broken into half a dozen military bases; he was the first person to be prosecuted for organizing an unauthorized demonstration in the vicinity of Parliament (with Maya Anne Evans); he's been to Iraq (1998-2002) to see the truth for himself; he's spoken in Nepal, India, the US, and Canada; he won the Transport & General Workers' Union Frank Cousins Peace Award (1993). He's contributed to the Cambridge Companion to Noam Chomsky, and sits on the advisory board of the journal Chomskyan Studies.
Not to be missed!
