Abstract:

With a strong Western policy for free market communications development instead of damage control, the U.S. and the West can forge a strategy to ensure that Third World states acquire modern communications technology and a free press and that free, independent journalists have fair access to information and audiences. If UNESCO wants to oppose these goals and champion the state controlled press, the U.S. may not be able to stop it. But there is no need for the U.S. to be an accomplice.
