Government propaganda

In case you missed the news your government specifically the Bush administration, has just created a White House office for global propaganda. They are not calling it that, of course. They are calling it the Office of Global Communications. Its purpose is to explain and promote U.S. policies and actions to the rest of the world. Or, as White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said, the new office will put out the word about "what America is all about and why America does what it does.''

It seems as though our government is becoming more like a corporation, and all successful corporations have great PR. It will be interesting to see how effective this new department will be, both here and abroad.

Always post a link when you refer to an article. Yes, government and corporate propaganda have a lot in common. Large institutions, bureaucratic institutions have a lot in common structurally.
