Tauris, 2000, 39.50 ISBN 1-860644-371-X Tom Easton Tony Shaw's well-researched study adds another important piece in the jigsaw that is helping us make sense of the impact of the Cold War on British politics and culture. He is well versed in the intricacies of the Information Research Department, the Congress for Cultural Freedom and other agencies of the formal apparatus of Cold War propaganda and ...

... be divided into three major categories, each of which mainly includes publications with clear rightist or leftist biases. However, these categories are not entirely discrete and it is often quite difficult to be certain just which category a given work falls into. (4 ) The first such category is literature which is consciously produced and/or disseminated for propaganda purposes, often by people with direct or indirect links to the intelligence services of countries that are members of either NATO or the Warsaw Pact. These works, being designed primarily to manipulate public perceptions and thereby generate support for the adoption of certain desired policies, contain a considerable amount of disinformation and sometimes appear to constitute components of more ...

13. Feedback [Lobster #44 (Winter 2002)]
... know that we were being lied to. Herman objects to my characterisation of his and Noam Chomsky's 'propaganda model' as an exemplar of 'white crow' thinking. He writes: the notion that Chomsky says that "what you believe is the truth and anyone saying otherwise is lying to you", is imbecile nonsense. The idea that the propaganda model repres-ents a "critique of individual journalists", is complete horseshit. That it divides the world into truth-tellers and liars, and that it focuses on lies is also unmitigated nonsense. On the first point, anyone applying the propaganda model will, over time, classify some sources as relatively trustworthy and others as ...

... six months in Aden in 1966 and in 1967 reported the Arab- Israeli war. 2. In 1969, I left the BBC External Services to take a job as a specialist writer in the Information Research Department of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. IRD had been set up at the onset of the Cold War to counter Soviet Communist Bloc propaganda, by monitoring, conducting research and providing unattributable briefings to journalists and others. 3. By the time I joined, IRD's terms of reference had widened to include responsibility for monitoring and countering hostile propaganda from any source. For example I spent some weeks in Bermuda advising on countering black-power propaganda and during 1971, I started ...

... ) In fact IRD's origins lie elsewhere, inside the Foreign Office. Warner was a member of 'the Russia Committee' of the Foreign Office, set up by him in April 1946 to coordinate policy towards the Soviet Union. On May 7th the committee recognised a need for a 'defensive-offensive' policy and drafted guide-lines for a propaganda counter-offensive. Foreign Secretary Bevin, however, was not then convinced such tactics were necessary and Warner's proposals remained unapproved until November 1947, after the Cominform declaration against the Marshall Plan. Only then did Bevin -- and the Cabinet -- accept the analysis of the Russia Committee, approving at the Cabinet meeting of January 5th ...

... Union, the Economic League and other bodies helped establish the Organisation for the Maintenance of Supplies in early 1925.(27) The links established with the Supply and Transport Organisation, however, acquired something of an official sanction when, in October 1919, Lloyd George called upon the services of Admiral Sir Reginald Hall and his organisation, National Propaganda, to assist the government to defeat the Railway Strike.(28) National Propaganda was employed by the Publicity Sub-committee of the STO to produce unofficial propaganda for the government and its strike-breaking organisation; and although Admiral Hall and his assistant, Captain Kelly, attended only the first meeting, permanent liaison betwen National Propaganda ...

In the second line of the introduction the author (or authors) states: 'Its creation was prompted by the desire of Ministers in Mr Atlee's Labour government to devise means to combat Communist propaganda'. [So there is the line of this study: it was the politicians who ordered it.] But ten lines later we find this. 'Within the Foreign Office.....IRD evolved from plans drawn up in 1946. It took some time, however, for officials to convince Ministers. ' It did ...

... for the British state. Tom Bower's otherwise excellent book on Sir Dick White and SIS contains only one (unindexed) reference to the department. With IRD under sporadic investigation since 1978, the British state has fallen back to the position where, if pushed, it would acknowledge that IRD did use 'grey', i.e . trueish propaganda, as well as the straightforward, 'white', true variety. Among the handful of academics interested in IRD, this is also now the current consensus view. But it does not explain why, as Lucas and Morris ask in their conclusions, 'the records of an organisation, ostensibly existing only to provide "information", [ ...

... in the press that Kincora was the centre of an 'establishment' vice ring; that this had been known by certain Ulster politicians for nearly ten years; and that they had been part of the cover-up. That may well be the case, but a closer examination suggests that Kincora is the link to a murky world of black propaganda, blackmail and assassination. A second report on the affair has been prepared by Sir George Terry who retired as Chief Constable of Sussex this year.
