Western Propaganda Blog
Western propaganda is a field of study worthy of its own specialised and creative terminology, particularly when it comes to the anti-China rhetoric that has become so prevalent in Western mainstream media. In this blog, CO-WEST-PRO's founder, Jaq James, has identified some specific techniques Australian journalists use to condition Australians to dislike and distrust China.
Remember that whenever you consume journalism that goes beyond a rehash of facts and neutral descriptions, you should always ask yourself these three questions:
- What are the essential elements of the story the journalist wants me to believe?
- Why does the journalist want me to believe their story?
- Is it reasonable to accept the journalist's story based on the information they have given me?
