propaganda machine
18 Oct 2001
more fancy instances of the propaganda model
From Aviation Week

At the start of big conflicts, someone usually dusts off the platitude that the first casualty of war is truth.

Ritually intoned, this wisdom is promptly forgotten. The adversaries proceed to their fate, which was aptly limned by a Russian chessmaster who said, in an observation that befits war as well as the chessboard, "All the mistakes are there, just waiting to be made."

President George W. Bush and his Administration have brazenly, and mistakenly, decided that the American people will receive as little of the truth as possible about the war on terrorism. Distrusting the people's judgment, the commander-in-chief and the Pentagon want more or less the last word on what Americans should know about the assault on Osama bin Laden, and his counterparts.
