SUMMARY: Building on David Barsamian's insights in his "Why You Can't Trust Corporate Media" presentation on May 9th, in this general-audience "next-step" two-hour mini-workshop, Moji Agha will introduce the topics of Culture-analysis and Hermeneutics, for a relatively easy to digest un-packing of the often hidden methods by which our mass media manufacture (usually for private corporate profit) the "unconscious" reality that "we" often take for granted.  A seemingly "highly objective" root-source news item (perhaps from the NY Times--most likely related to Trump's decision regarding the fate of the Iran nuclear deal) will be analyzed in this open to the public free-of-charge interactive educational gathering. A mini bio for Moji can be found here: https://www.laprogressive.com/author/moji-agha/ -- and his e-mail, for more info, questions, etc. is: moji.agha@gmail.com
