(FROM 1950) The central villian was the public-relations (propaganda) man.

They try to achieve their ends by working entirely behind-the-scenes.

Corrupting and deceiving the public.

The aims of such groups may be "good" or "bad".

But their methods are a GRAVE DANGER TO DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS.

They also illustrated how the "responsible citizen" could "monitor-the-press" themselves.

They could create a chart that analysed reporting for "signs-of-hidden-bias".

But such earnest instruction (homework) was to be no match for the masters of marketing-spin-public-relations-advertizing-propaganda-image-consulting.

They would create (and sell) a vision of a new UTOPIA called, "FREE-MARKET-CAPITALISM".
