Propaganda & Mass Persuasion

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

"If there is a thread linking these stories, it is that the media have reported them enthusiastically and uncritically, with no independent verification."(p.1)By J. Getlin & E. Jensen

This quote represents the problems that grew between the media and the pentegon during the current war in Iraq. Similar to the issues during the Gulf War, the censorship and total control of what news was to be reported by the media caused them to write stories of speculation and rumor. Obviously a modern day version of propaganda, one can't help but question the credability of the news being reported.
