More Information Media management and public relations is very professional The impacts of public relations cannot be underestimated. In the commercial world, marketing and advertising are typically needed to make people aware of products.
When it comes to propaganda for purposes of war, for example, professional public relations firms can often be involved to help sell a war. In cases where a war is questionable, the PR firms are indirectly contributing to the eventual and therefore unavoidable casualties.
Media management may also be used to promote certain political policies and ideologies.
Where this is problematic for the citizenry is when media reports on various issues do not attribute their sources properly. Governments and individuals contracting PR firms to sell a waror other important issues Disinformation or partial information reported as news or fact without attributing sources that might be questionable PR firms feeding stories to the press without revealing the nature of the information with the intention of creating a public opinion for example, to support a war, as the previous link highlights where even human rights groups fell for some of the disinformation, thus creating an even more effective propaganda campaign The Gulf War in Iraq,highlighted a lot of PR work in action.
Air Force Academy in I am not a national security strategist or a military tactician, Rendon said. I am a politician, and a person who uses communication to meet public policy or corporate policy objectives.
In fact, I am an information warrior and a perception manager. He reminded the Air Force cadets that when victorious troops rolled into Kuwait City at the end of the first war in the Persian Gulf, they were greeted by hundreds of Kuwaitis waving small American flags.
The scene, flashed around the world on television screens, sent the message that U. Marines were being welcomed in Kuwait as liberating heroes. Did you ever stop to wonder, Rendon asked, how the people of Kuwait City, after being held hostage for seven long and painful months, were able to get hand-held American, and for that matter, the flags of other coalition countries?
He paused for effect. Well, you now know the answer. That was one of my jobs then. Public relations firms often do their work behind the scenes But his description of himself as a perception manager echoes the language of Pentagon planners, who define perception management as actions to convey and or deny selected information and indicators to foreign audiences to influence their emotions, motives, and objective reasoning.
In various ways, perception management combines truth projection, operations security, cover, and deception, and psyops [psychological operations]. One can understand how these have been tactics of war. Churchill used such a technique to fool the Nazis regarding the Normandy landings, for example.
The war on Iraq saw similar amounts of public relations and media manipulation at work. A detailed account was given by Ahmed Chalabi who seemed to boast how he helped influence major politicians and countries into drumming the beats of war against Iraq.
Back to top Smear tactics are increasing in sophistication Smear tactics are often used to discredit, stain or destroy the reputation of someone.
It is unfortunatley common-place and is an age-old technique.
It can either involve outright lies, or a distortion of the truth. With the increasing popularity of the Internet, and search engines such as Google, smearing is taking on additional forms and techniques. Juan Cole, a professor of history has described what he has coined a GoogleSmear as a political tactic to discredit him.
His personal experience is quoted here: It seems to me that David Horowitz and some far rightwing friends of his have hit upon a new way of discrediting a political opponent, which is the GoogleSmear.
It is an easy maneuver for someone like Horowitz, who has extremely wealthy backers, to set up a web magazine that has a high profile and is indexed in google news.Informed, Nuanced Analysis on Libya.
