Note From The Editors
This is a slightly amended version of the foreword to the new Media Lens book, ‘Propaganda Blitz – How The Corporate Media Distort Reality’, published today by Pluto Press. Warm thanks to John Pilger for contributing this superb piece to our book.
The death of Robert Parry earlier this year felt like a farewell to the age of the reporter. Parry was “a trailblazer for independent journalism”, wrote Seymour Hersh, with whom he shared much in common.
