  •  "The Propaganda Addict" (24+ / 0-)
    ".....the propaganda addict...see in everything its propaganda content and nothing else....Everything is for or against him. nothing is innocent, nothing is pleasurable, everything is connected with his diseased apprehension of power. Before he gets power, he hates the people who have power; he does not trust their intelligence...personalities...good will...or motives. They must be scum because....he the propaganda infatuated man...should hold it."
    -Psychological Warfare, Linebarger, 1948
    Huey Long attributed to the newspapers a large numbers of lies that (the newspapers did not actually -ed) print, along with the "lies" (which were in historical fact true) that they did actually print ......since most of Long's followers either boycotted the press or read it in a hostile frame of mind, they never found out whether the newspaper said it or not......the listener will be so busy scoffing at what the paper allegedly said that he will take no time to find out whether the paper did say it or not. Such attributions occur in everyday life; the smart propagandist attributes plenty of rich, ripe, silly quotations to his opponent.
