  •  When Khruschev Visited America in '59 (1+ / 0-)

    and was shown all the consumer goods and what not that his hosts thought would impress him, Khruschev instead marveled at our media and it's ability to propagandize without the people having the slightest idea they were being propagandized.

    No one knew what to tell him since even the State Dept. flacks thought the media was entirely free and honest. Khruschev thought that was really something, when even government apparatchiks are successfully fooled as well.  

    That was 60 years ago in an era many of us mis-remember as benign. It wasn't. The media has only gotten better at it since then.
