Honors Blog #1: Book Introduction

Natalie Taborska, Editor-in-Chief

The book that I’m currently reading is called Weapons of Mass Deception: The uses of Propaganda in Bush’s War on Iraq by Sheldon Rampton and John Stauber and I chose this book because I’m really interested in how propaganda has been used to manipulate the people to feel the need to go to war. I’m also interested in comparing past uses of propaganda to todays uses of propaganda and seeing if there are any similarities.
