Warriors of Disinformation : How Lies, Videotape, and the USIA Won the Cold War Paperback / softback
With most things that go on in today's America, the voting public has little or no information of what's actually going on.
In "Warriors of Disinformation", you see first-hand the government cover-ups, especially in the miniscule amount of knowledge we have on the material broadcast sent overseas by our government.
Alvin A. Snyder, a former director of USIA's Television and Film Service reveals the various propaganda campaigns sent out by the US during the Cold War.
He goes into detail to show all the 'shady' ways in which our government spent billions of dollars dedicated to "an exaggerated version of the truth" and how President Reagan used this to deceive and lie to the Soviets.
The reader's of this book will be 'shocked and awed' at the lengths that our government went to cover-up the truth and to consistently lie to not only the Soviets, but the American people about what was going on in our "home of the free".
