    With just the right amount of persuasion (thumb screws, water boarding etc) I am sure that "unbiased" journalist can be made to see the light.

    All good points. The answer I was looking for was shutting down radio, TV, and newspapers. Best way to push your own propaganda is to eliminate all the other available media sources. And if you can't eliminate them, then discredit them.
