September 26, 2019 News Is A Weapon: Propaganda and Broadcast Journalism 1940-45

7:30 pm - Berwick Academy Arts Center

President Franklin D. Roosevelt

FDR  When war broke out in 1941, President Roosevelt asked his press secretary to initiate actions assuring government control over one of America's commercial radio networks.  In his talk, Dr. Michael Socolow will explain why the government never actually assumed this control, and how the Roosevelt administration came to decide that the best vehicle for conveying war messages to the citizenry would be the existing radio networks. The talk will touch on war censorship and the ways propaganda and broadcast journalism interacted during the Second World War.
