Fake news empire: Unlearning the lies at the heart of American ideology.


In this period of extreme neoliberalism - where US imperialism has entered a stage economically, in terms of its capitalist infrastructure, that points to a need to siphon off, and privatize, and profit from every single aspect of society, to pillage and to rape and destroy nations around the world - this need is critical. It's a form of desperation of an empire that's running out of things to plunder.

Black Agenda Report's Danny Haiphong examines the lies at the root of the story America tells itself - as the corporate media obscures the reality of social relations at the base of American power, our collective notions of exceptionalism and innocence mask the exploitation that occurs around us everyday, and the exploiting class at the top of American society.

Danny is author of the book American Exceptionalism and American Innocence: A People's History of Fake News—From the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror from Skyhorse Books.
