The Republicans control the Supreme Court, the Senate, Congress and the White House. They dominate the mass media. They will use any and all means necessary to win in the upcoming election. Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber are two of the most important analysts of the propaganda used by the rich and the powerful to control the citizens of the most powerful democracy on earth. Here they show how the techniques developed by Bush's team in Texas, in the 2000 and 2002 elections, and in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq will be deployed over the next six months to secure a second term for their boss. The presidential campaign of 2004 is the latest instalment of a psychological warfare operation against the American people that is unprecedented in both scale and sophistication. Success could spell disaster for America and the world. George W. Bush has presided over the greatest security disaster in US history, vandalised the US economy, flouted international law and savaged the Constitution. Now he wants four more years to finish the job. Here's how he plans to do it.… (mais)

This book looks at how the Republicans, now in control of every major part of the federal government (Congress, the White House, the Supreme Court and the mass media), are now working to maintain and strengthen that hold through manipulation of the American political culture.

Republicans have worked hard, and very methodically, for at least the last 20 years, to build the conservative movement. It now ranges from conservative think tanks, like the Heritage Foundation, to K Street lobbying firms, to right wing media (especially talk radio). Starting from the grass roots, Republicans have become very good at getting their message to the public. The weekly Republican "must attend" meeting in Washington is run by tax opponent Grover Norquist. It is there that the message of the week is chosen. Democrats are nowhere near as organized.

Even inside the Republican Party, moderation and disagreement are squelched, and traditional oversight agencies are stripped of their influence. The National Cancer Institute's website was altered to say that abortion increases a woman's chance of getting breast cancer, even though actual research overwhelmingly shows the opposite. The CDC's website has been altered, in that information showing that condom use is effective in preventing AIDS has been removed. This is in line with the Christian Right's opposition to sex education.

Woe unto that person or group who uses their constitutional right to oppose the war in Iraq. Tennessee State Senator Tim Burchett has advocated the deportation of war critics. Who can forget the experiences of the Dixie Chicks? A number of recently published books equate liberals with hating America, and generally betraying the nation. Ann Coulter has called Democrats the Treason Party. It has now become popular among Republicans to label any dissenter, whether environmentalist or senior citizen, as a terrorist.

This is an excellent book from Rampton and Stauber. The brains behind PR Watch, they have created another Must Read look at how the US Government really works. This is highly recommended. ( )
