A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Then a mighty strange thing happened.  Guess you could call it fate. You see, a gust of wind blew the picture frame down and it landed on the muckety-muck's head And the mice they all went crazy. For the first time they saw the lie.

It was all a hoax on just simple folks. And the muckety-muck must die. And die he did. The members of his staff they just fled. They were scared. Hah. Just not prepared." - Song: The Proper Gander. Songwriter: Bobby Darin

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

Consuming Images

Consuming Images (Bill Moyers documentary from 1990 about the public mind and the media culture)

"This rare documentary from 1990 with Bill Moyers was possibly the first to examine the hyper-commercialized images the mainstream media floods us with. It includes interviews with Neil Postman, Stuart Ewen, Mark Crispin Miller, Herbert Schiller, and others. It is just as relevant today as when first aired."
