The 1998 film Wag the Dog (starring Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, and Anne Heche, among others) shows how EASY it is to manipulate public opinion “via television.”
Well, you can watch the real thing happening on CNN this week with Christiane Amanpour’s “documentary” (aka propaganda piece) entitled “God’s Warriors.”
This is Dog Wagging at its best.
This is also cause to use one of my favorite acronyms, WABOS.
The propaganda in this series is obvious to any balanced-thinking individual. (read what might be included in a balanced approach.)
In fact, I think this Dog Wagging is so powerful, it goes beyond propaganda. I think the real questions ought to be: Why is Christiane prostituting herself in this manner? Who is she doing this for? And for what in return?
