EDITED AND HOSTED BY THE GREANVILLE POST
Woodrow Wilson was the first international mass media politician. A racist academic from South Carolina who was promoted from a Princeton professorship into the POTUS office (at a special showing at the White House in 1913, he endorsed DW Griffith’s KKK-exulting Birth of a Nation as memorable cinema: “It’s like writing history with lighting My only regret is that it is all so terribly true.”), Wilson's entire presidency was public relations, culminating in the Creel Committee which essentially helped sell the decision by those who had founded the FED in 1913 that they needed US troops to protect Britain and France from defaulting on their war loans.
Adolf Hitler was the second great PR creation. His image was carefully cultivated by the same filmmaking talent that emigrated to the US to promote the Anglo-American Empire after Germany's defeat.
