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

Oxymoron Military Intelligence Specialists - 1961 United States War Office Educational Documentary

History can seem so cartoonish and over the top.

The voice over narrator does a great job producing the authoritative broadcast voice, this voice seems a bit comical today. The music sounds a lot like mid 1960's television cartoon music. It is very difficult to take this seriously and it seems designed to give itself away as a joke.
