Thanks for pointing to this. I have often speculated how we might have fared in Britain had the BBC of the time been similar to its current counterpart. Anyhow, a while back I came across the following blogpost at Jessica's Well. It details an article written by John Dos Passos in Life Magazine, published in 1946. It is the first article I ever came across that indicates the driection media reporting would take. For what it's worth, I have lived in Holland for many years and I am married to a Dutchwoman whose family suffered the German occupation. I showed them the article and, needless to say, their mouths fell open with disbelief at the scale of misrepresentation towards the USA of the period.
