101. After Iraq: some FCO/SIS issues [Lobster #48 (Winter 2004)]
... be about facilitating those circumstances, if any; 'public relations' could be seeking to persuade the public such circumstances had arisen even though this would be a lie; 'propaganda' could be telling the public how to think. (Although both can be used concurrently, normally PR is used when there is sufficient time for persuasion to work; propaganda when there is none. In either case, the truth is immaterial.) Something similar is what seems to have happened to SIS vis--vis Iraq. Because there was a predetermined objective to invade, the intelligence 'product' favoured by government was not completion of weapons inspection, nor societal knowledge, but WMD information with its caveats removed, ...

... of Foreign Secretary Jack Straw announcing in October, after the Iraq Survey Group had officially declared Iraq innocent of WMDs, that certain intelligence to the contrary, which had been known to be a fraud for at least a year, had been 'withdrawn' by MI6. (2) The American-British-Australian relationship Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit-9/11 is great propaganda but, like all propaganda, it isn't about the truth. In a section mocking the so-called 'coalition of the willing' which supported the US invasion of Iraq, Moore listed several very small countries but omitted Australia, the UK and Spain. For Australia and the UK the political decision to support the USA caused major ructions within ...

103. Banana Republicans (Book review) [Lobster #48 (Winter 2004)]
... | Next Issue 48 Banana Republicans How the Right Wing is Turning America into a One Party State Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber London: Robinson, 2004, p/back, £7.99 This is well written, detailed and documented. The authors describe how American business funds the American right and how that right operates: its think-tanks, its propaganda outfits, its hired hack journalists, its PR firms; and how it commissions and disseminates phoney research, runs smear campaigns and psy-ops, gerrymanders electoral districts, and steals elections. There are fairly detailed studies of the campaigns against Clinton and of the Florida election-theft, but this is a thick skim made by experts: a detailed account ...

... alliance that is emerging in Europe. Universalising 'the West'It extends and universalises the 'West' as a repository of universal values whether for reasons of preemptive defence (the American Right) or because it is a moral imperative based on ideology (the neo-conservative and liberal internationalist impulse). Until now, this reification of the West was a propaganda tool by one side in the Cold War or the plaything of intellectuals and of a certain school of right-wing radicalism. Now it is a practical political programme in which certain Judaeo-Christian and Enlightenment ideas are synthesised into a global model for trickledown through the world's middle classes. The investigating judges are merely, in this context, the potential police ...

David Millar London: Pluto, 2003, £12.99, p/back One of the downsides of appearing every six months is that occasionally books arrive just too late for the issue in which they should appear and by the time the next issue appears they have lost some of their zip. This is one such. When I received it just before Lobster 46 was published, the details of the invasion of Iraq and the way the media handled it, were still fresh in the memory. David Millar ...

106. Terrorism, Anti-Semitism and Dissent [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... which three particularly help in clarifying our thoughts on where Blair and British politics fits into the picture. Uri Avnery's 'Manufacturing Anti-Semites' is a very powerful attack on the present government of Israel by one of its own citizens. 'The Sharon government is a giant laboratory for growing the anti-Semitism virus. It exports it to the whole world. Sharon's propaganda agents are pouring oil on the flames. Accusing all critics of his policy of being anti-Semites, they brand large communities with this mark, Many good people, who feel no hatred at all towards the Jews but who detest the persecution of the Palestinians, are now called anti-Semites. Thus the sting is taken out of this word, ...

107. Re: [Lobster #47 (Summer 2004)]
... 2004 Last| Contents| Next Issue 47 Re: Terry Hanstock Radio Enoch: the station you love to hate Radio Enoch (see Lobster 46) was one of a number of Free Radio stations operating illegally during the 1960s and 1970s. Unlike its more pop music oriented contemporaries, however, Radio Enoch's output consisted solely of right wing political propaganda, albeit with a musical background. (1) Its origins lie with a group called People Against Marxism, which, in July 1978, set up Two Spires Radio, rejoicing in the slogan 'The Station You Love to Hate'. Based at Leamington Spa, the station's signal only covered the West Midlands. Over the next few ...

... editorial timidity. But the 'Top 25 censored stories' themselves aren't very good evidence of these processes. Call me a cynic, but I can't imagine 'US Military's War on the Earth' or 'The Effort to Make Unions Disappear' ever playing big on network news. Mainstream news outlets are turning out ever less news and ever more froth and propaganda, and it would be nice to have this trend reversed; that said, some stories are only ever going to appear in magazines with committed readerships. (Widely available magazines with large committed readerships, ideally.) Paradoxically, the 'censorship' model errs on the side of optimism. Censorship is something somebody does-- and they ...

... not be published by The Paris Review, he had power in the culture and the ability, through the interviews of writers he published, to influence public opinion. The former ambassador said that Plimpton was 'very close to the Congress of Cultural Freedom and very involved with their activities'. This was all part of Eisenhower's scheme to 'privatize' propaganda. The Congress of Cultural Freedom, one of whose original members was Tennessee Williams, played an important role in all of this.

... in a letter to me in December 1987 he wrote: 'I refuse to have dealings with intelligence services for the simple reason that if they give one any information and one is challenged in court they either might or might not be prepared to give evidence.' I never decided whether I believed this or not. The high point of his propaganda activities was probably the publication in 1974 and 1979 of The Hidden Face of the Labour Party, a large tabloid-style pamphlet warning of the penetration of the Labour Party by 'communists' and, in the 1979 version, by 'communist' and Trotskyist groups. Contemporary reports suggested these pamphlets had been distributed by the million. I met him in ...
