Bye Hi

politics > propaganda > not very succesful
The american occupation forces' magazine "Hi!" which aimed to covince Iraqi youth about the benign nature of the american conquest, seems to be faring dismally, in part because of the crassness of the US propaganda:
"...The Hi editors are saying, 'Why have a dialogue on such issues as US Middle East policy, which, after all, is not up for discussion? We've had plenty of dialogue with Arabs about the subject, anyway. Learn to accept what you cannot change.'" According to Mr Toensing, "only the state department could have [come up with] a magazine so purportedly apolitical, and yet whose message is so essentially political"..."
