Interview: Walt Disney’s America

Media historian Susan Douglas explores how Walt Disney, through his television program and Disneyland, presented Americans with an idealized version of their country. “He’s selling a version of America that’s very flattering to the country,” she says, “[But] it deludes you into thinking that there aren’t problems that you have to confront.”
“Walt Disney” premieres Sep. 14 & 15 on PBS.
