Propaganda Inc.: Behind the curtain at the USIA

Dr. Nancy Snow spent two years working within the ranks of America's official propaganda organ, the United States Information Agency, and then surgically exposed the inner workings of the organization in her acclaimed publication, Propaganda Inc. In this interview with the Guerrilla News Network, Dr. Snow breaks down the covert history of U.S. propaganda efforts both inside and outside of the country's borders. Tracing the strategies employed by top propagandists like George Creel and Walter Lippman, Dr. Snow elaborates an over-arching system of mass persuasion that targets our most educated and influential citizens in order to shape the construct of public opinion. As it turns out, the business of war changes nothing when it comes to the marketing of U.S. interests in the world theatre.
