James Baker on media control
This is how media is controlled in western contries:
Writing about the meeting with Haris Silajdzic on April 14th 1992,
James Baker III, US Secretary of State, in a roundabout way, gives
a hard to come by detail on setting "free" western media into action:
" ... After the meeting, I had Larry Eagleburger take
Silajdzic to see the EC troika political directors
(who happened to be visiting the Department) and
asked Margaret Tutwiler to talk to the Foreign
Minister about the importance of using Western
mass media to build support in Europe and North
America for the Bosnian cause. I also had her talk
to her contacts at the four television networks, the
"Washington Post," and the "New York Times" to
try to get more attention focused on the story. ... "
