Mason Weaver "If you were a lonely soldier on a Pacific island during World War ll and you only got your news about the war from Tokyo Rose, you would be depressed, disheartened, confused, angry and scared. You would feel like your values had been abandoned and your fight had no value. The G.I. listened to Tokyo Rose because she played American music and had news from home, but they knew she was against them. The Tokyo Rose phenomena is still alive and has taken over the American press. From the New York Times bureau of Tokyo Rose to the L.A. Times bureau of a Tokyo Rose, the mainstream press constantly blankets the public with inaccurate, slanted hit pieces portrayed as news. They have become no more that the propaganda wing of the left.
