Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

They spread propaganda.


The one-sided barrage of 'news' (sic) here in the US was propaganda.  There was no attempt at dispassionate analysis.  There was no attempt to put the conflict in its historical context.  There was a serious, on-going, effort to keep the American public thinking Israeli's 'stuff' don't stink.

Thought experiment:  Try to imagine an American 'news' (sic) organization reporting from Lebanon the way Richard R. Murrow reported from London during the Blitz.
