Challenging the Mainstream Propaganda
by Nick Barisheff‏
Paul Joseph Goebbels was the Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. He once said that if you tell a big enough lie and keep repeating it, people eventually come to believe it.

This article by Raul Ilargi Meijer gives an excellent overview of the propaganda disseminated by the press today.
