With holding information doesnt better the country

The Persian Gulf War received a lot of publicity in the media just like any other war, but it seemed as if more information was withheld from the people rather then keeping them informed and up to date with accurate information. Media coverage on this war was very skeptical. Because so much information was disclosed from the people the information seemed to unfold in bits in pieces rather than a concrete presentation. In the article Manipulating Hearts and Minds by Herbert Schiller he states, “In fact, the United States, with its enormous media system operating with state-of-the art technologies, has been as closed as a society could be to information, facts and opinions which in the slightest challenged the national war policy (Schiller,23).”
