Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: Corporate Media Attacks Dead Messenger

Peter B. Collins Presents Robert Parry

Hollywood’s purveyors of fiction have served up a remarkably factual feature film—Kill the Messenger-- about the late journalist Gary Webb, who exposed the CIA links to the US crack epidemic and funding for the Nicaraguan Contras. But as Robert Parry ably describes, Washington Post editor Jeff Leen is still spreading disinformation about Webb and his important reporting from an outlet that purportedly delivers nonfiction. Parry, who initially exposed the cocaine profits that were funding the Contras when he worked for AP in the 1980’s, offers a fascinating review of the real facts, and rates the film highly for its accuracy.
