Bush lies and manipulates public and Congress
by the ever-resourceful Carla Binion
Expanding on my previous entry, I find:
Huxley quotes Hitler's statement that "all propaganda must be confined to a few bare necessities and then must be expressed in a few stereotyped formulas . . . Only constant repetition will finally succeed in imprinting an idea upon the memory of a crowd." Bush has delivered the stereotyped formulas "You're either with us or with the terrorists;" "the oceans can't protect us;" and Saddam is connected with "al Qaeda," using constant repetition.
Carla has provided us with an excellent article and an amazing collection of resources.
These resources could be used by the mainstram media in an effort to rectify their hasty shortsightedness
. If the mainstream doesn't feel inclined to admit they were falling down on the job, then, through repetition, someone must. Read her article, use her resources, wash, rinse and repeat.
