A Mosquito on an Elephant’s Behind: The Third World News Review and Cedric and Elizabeth Robinson’s Community Media

By Joshua Myers

Abstract:

It is now a commonplace to assert that the US media offers a narrow and often misleading picture of global events. Its beholdenness to the Washington consensus and corporate interests is now broadly realized. But this was not so in 1980, when Cedric J. Robinson and Corey Dubin created the Third World News Review. Utilizing the radio station at the University of California, Santa Barbara, KCSB, 91.9 FM, they joined Elizabeth Robinson and many other students, staff, faculty members, and community activists to practice a form of community media that sought to destabilize official narratives of Western foreign policies in the Third World.
