Manipulating Hearts and Minds

For so many years in school I learned about our great country and our many freedoms here in the U.S.A., which include freedom of speech and the press. I was so shocked to learn about the unbelievable control of the American people and their consciousness by the government and the media. The military of the U.S. and the Bush administration were so closed with their facts and information. They controlled all the information on the war especially on the radio and television. No one could challenge our National War policy. No one.

An interesting conclusion. What are you basing it on? Choose a specific point/quote and discuss it.
Stating that public opinion is controlled by the media and the goverment is a dramatic statement but it needs to be supported by evidence of how this could be possible. How does this control work? Do you feel that you are controlled by the media and the government? Or is it just the "public"?
