Has the American Press become "Baghdad" Rose?
Mark Simone, of WABC radio, covered something interesting on his show yesterday. He was talking about the broadcasts of "Tokyo Rose". Tokyo Rose (for those who are products of the public school system) is an amalgam of 5 female broadcasters (on Japanese Radio) whose propaganda broadcasts were specifically designed to demoralize the Allied forces in the Asian Theater. Mr. Simone (according to a friend of mine who listened to the broadcast) mentioned that the writers of these broadcasts did studies (on POW's?) designed to determine what would have the most adverse effect on our troops. Their top 3???
1. The president lied to get the US into the war
2. The real reason the president took the US to war was to profit large corporations
3. The war is not winnable [for the US]
Does any of this sound familiar dear readers?????
