The Brainwashing of My Father--Sunday, May 7, 6:00 pm, Center for Inquiry, 350 Canal Walk, Suite A, Indianapolis. Film screening arranged by Matt Barron.
As filmmaker, Jen Senko, tries to understand the transformation of her father from a non political, life-long Democrat to an angry, Right-Wing fanatic, she uncovers the forces behind the media that changed him completely: a plan by Roger Ailes under Nixon for a media takeover by the GOP, The Powell Memo urging business leaders to influence institutions of public opinion, especially the universities, the media and the courts, and under Reagan, the dismantling of the Fairness Doctrine.
