Mass Media Role in the United States of America Interventions
American society organised by and for an accelerated capitalism, with almost permanent war state of class interest, erodes a truly open democracy through extensive strategies in thought control. Hence, major United States of America media becomes the main tool for propaganda cultivation and public mobilisation in order to achieve a comfortable climate for the exploitation of other nations. It is highly evidenced in the case of Iraq War - one of the most intensively reported, though, one of the most fictitious wars as well. The American mass media corporations used a number of means such as media filters, embedding systems and military staged events to produce an extremely sanitized view that perfectly fitted Western demands and its patriotic portrayal. Even when the world was encountered with the leakage disclosing tragic photographs from Abu Ghraib prison, where the United States has used tactics such as murder and torture, media still remarkably failed to question government conduct and its justifications. And so, a national crime against the sovereign country has slipped not even unnoticeably, but with a strong public support.
