Titles About The Propaganda Machine
It is difficult and complex to ever really know if political leaders are telling the truth. Along with truthful communications often come lying, spin, hype, hate-speech and fear-mongering from the Propaganda Machine. Deciding what is truthful and what is deceptive takes considerable effort. However, the truth really matters. Political leaders and the mass media collaborate in a business relationship to build this giant Propaganda Machine which collectively attempts to tell us how to think and vote by delivering enormous amounts of influence messages to us at an unrelenting pace. This title presents several deception-detecting strategies that can be used to sort out statements for truth. It shows numerous persuasion tactics political leaders use to convince us to think and vote the way they want us to think and vote. It describes how not to get controlled by the drama of political leaders’ communications to persuade us to vote for them without at least making a smart effort to understand the real messages.
A Behind-The-Scenes Account Of The White House Propaganda Machine As It Packages And Shapes The News By Manipulating, Misleading, And In Some Cases, Intimidating The Press: It is also the tale of how some of the nation’s top journalists buy into these efforts and, often, put their own spin on the news.
Based on the meticulous research of the news watchdog organization Media Matters for America, this title shows how Fox News, under its president Roger Ailes, changed from a right-leaning news network into a partisan advocate for the Republican Party.
Edwin M. Stanton (1814-1869), one of the nineteenth century’s most impressive legal and political minds, wielded enormous influence and power as Lincoln’s Secretary of War during most of the Civil War and under Johnson during the early years of Reconstruction. In the first full biography of Stanton in more than fifty years, this title offers a detailed reexamination of Stanton’s life, career, and legacy. It argues that while Stanton was a formidable advocate and politician, his character was hardly benign. Climbing from a difficult youth to the pinnacle of power, Stanton used his authority–and the public coffers–to pursue political vendettas, and he exercised sweeping wartime powers with a cavalier disregard for civil liberties.
Putin’s Propaganda Machine examines Russia’s “information war,” one of the most striking features of its intervention in Ukraine. It argues that the Kremlin’s propaganda offensive is a carefully prepared strategy, implemented and tested over the last decade. Initially intended as a tool to enhance Russia’s soft power, it quickly developed into one of the main instruments of Russia’s new imperialism, reminiscent of the height of the Cold War. This title describes a multifaceted strategy that makes use of diverse instruments, including mimicking Western public diplomacy initiatives, hiring Western public-relations firms, setting up front organizations, buying Western media outlets, financing political parties, organizing a worldwide propaganda offensive through the Kremlin’s cable network RT, and publishing paid supplements in leading Western newspapers. In this information war, key roles are assigned to the Russian diaspora and the Russian Orthodox Church, the latter focused on spreading so-called traditional values and attacking universal human rights and Western democracy in international fora. This title demonstrates that the Kremlin’s propaganda machine not only plays a central role in its “hybrid war” in Ukraine, but also has broader international objectives, targeting in particular Europe’s two leading countries — France and Germany — with the goal of forming a geopolitical triangle, consisting of a Moscow-Berlin-Paris axis, intended to roll back the influence of NATO and the United States in Europe.
