Piers Robinson of the University of Sheffield is one of the UK's most distinguished journalism professors. According to the University's website: "Piers' current research focuses on organised persuasive communication (OPC) and contemporary propaganda, with a particular focus on the current war in Syria. He is co-director of the Organisation for Propaganda Studies(OPS) and convenes the Working Group on Syria, Propaganda and Media. Recent published work includes a new conceptual approach for theorising propaganda and analysis of propaganda and deception in relation to the 'war on terror' and the 2003 Iraq invasion (ses publications)."
Certain professional propagandists apparently think Piers is doing his job too well. He has been targetedby the same kind of smear campaign as other witch-hunted professors including Norman Finkelstein, Anthony Hall, and yours truly.
In this interview we discuss academic freedom and its enemies; possible false flag events including 9/11 and "Syrian chemical weapons"; and the "Integrity Initiative," a supposed UK charity that appears to be part of a slicker, updated British version of Operation Mockingbird.
