Join author Dr. Leonard Teel in an exploration of his work exporting the storytelling method of American journalism to other countries.

Dr. Teel brings to life the effects of exporting American journalism methods to Nigeria and across the Middle East. He will contrast successful implementations with the story of 13 American foreign correspondents manipulatively used by Fidel Castro as propagandists in the service of his 1950s revolution.
