There were nine general themes for the letters: The letters were coded according to type:
Town criers spread information and news including royal edicts, police regulations, important community events and war news. These early methods of communication were often delivered by messengers on foot, and could be easily controlled by the ruling class.
Corantoswhich were semi-regular pamphlets that reported news, are an example of the early politico-media complex. Popular in England, corantos reported mostly foreign news, as the royal government attempted to control what domestic news reached the masses.
Corantos eventually would become regular periodicals that were subject to less political control, and mark one of the earlier forms of industrialized media.
The Reporters Without Borders Press Freedom Index suggests that even in many first world countries the rights of the press are not fully respected, and that the press is not completely free to investigate or criticize the government, though the situation is far worse in third world or politically unstable nations.
Newspapers and magazines do have a back and forth between readers and journalists. Some studies have shown that the print media are more likely to reinforce existing political attitudes of the masses than change them.
How can you condemn human rights violations abroad if you do not behave irreproachably at home? The Obama effect, which has enabled the United States to recover 16 places in the index, is not enough to reassure us.
Eritrea is currently a one-party "transitional government" which has yet to enact its ratified constitution. However, a report notes that 55 million newspapers are still sold daily in the United States,  and newsprint still plays a significant role in the politico-media complex.
Surveys have found that people tend to trust newspapers less than other news media, in part because they believe that newspaper journalists are "isolated and out of touch" and motivated by commercial interests. Harvard Professor Thomas Patterson has said: My sense is that, like it or not, the future of news is going to be in the electronic media, but we don't really know what that form is going to look like.
The early American radio industry was composed of commercial shipping companies that used radio for navigation, and amateur radio enthusiasts, who built radios at home. The close politico-media complex between government and radio was finalized in [ original research?
Politicians would continue to use the radio in World War II, in which the radio was used primarily for news transmissions and the spread of propaganda.
These women hosted anti-American programming intended to lower American soldiers' morale and illustrate the use of governments' use of the media to influence the public, or their enemies. After WWII and throughout the Cold War era, Democratic nations used long-range radio waves to broadcast news into countries behind the Iron Curtain or otherwise information-compromised nations.
The American international radio program, the Voice of Americafounded during World War II, became a critical part of Cold War era "public diplomacy," which aimed to spread democratic values, and popularize American policies abroad. Truman described the Cold War conflict as a "struggle, above all else, for the minds of men," which the American people would win by getting "the real story across to people in other countries.
Programming included unbiased news coverage, musical programs, and Special English broadcasts, which intended to help listeners master American English. Where the less influential ones are not necessarily less self-congratulatory, they are certainly more inward-looking and always carry the label of national specificity.
Propaganda Propaganda is a way that politics can be represented and manipulated in film. Leif Furhammar and Folke Isaksson credit Russian producers Sergei Eisenstein and Vsevolod Pudovkin with the birth of propaganda aesthetics, for which the underlying assumption was that by manipulating cinematic images representing reality, they could manipulate spectators' concepts of reality.
When sound became possible, documentaries have been said to become more politically powerful with the use of speakers' voices and music. The same is found in documentaries about the Spanish Civil War.
The House Committee on Un-American Activitiesfor example, did this with Operation Abolition     in and Nazi newsreels depicted scenes of the Allies' defeat at Dieppe as real scenes from the Normandy invasion just a few days afterward to convince audience of the Reich's success.
The film sought to legitimize the Nazis' genocide, while glorifying sadism, brutality, and machismo. That society may be incapable of testing the present against the past has implications for post-industrial oppression in the West and the strategies for resisting it.
Despite the writings of Antonio GramsciHerbert Marcuseand Paulo Freirethe majority of Americans at least do not recognize how important class hegemonyor cultural domination, is in nations where populations are kept obedient to governments through ideological means.
Hall describe, he ultimately failed. Smith Goes to Washington " Capra's films are characterized by the same basic formula according to which the fundamental American values of fairness and honesty are challenged by the corruption and cruelty of politics. Deeds Goes to Town in which he expresses his disgust with the complexities of politics and calls for individual goodness.
Smith Goes to WashingtonCapra reinforces the integrity and decency of the everyman who can transcend politics despite the power and crookedness of special interest groups. He fails, however, in the midst of a violent mob with the depressing conclusion that the American public is a credulous crowd, susceptible to manipulation until the John Doe club members come begging his forgiveness and convince him to return to lead them.
Capra's ultimate fall from filmmaking and his advice that all American filmmakers should forget politics if they do not want to cut themselves in half signify the challenge filmmakers face when they attempt to criticize politics.
JFK and The Manchurian Candidateon the other hand, are based on the premise that democracy is an illusion and Americans are the ignorant pawns of various conspiracies involving, for example, the collusion between the government and the media.
