Amerika: Entertainment or Propaganda?

In 1987, ABC produced a miniseries entitled, Amerika. The plot of the show revolved around three major characters, all of which were political leaders. 

The television series was met with harsh criticism prior to release. Local activists argued that the show was harmful to US-USSR relations. 

By exploring the criticisms brought up by activists, response by critics, and the United Nations response, the impact of Amerika can begin to be understood.
