On Halloween night of 1938 America was in a state of panic. War of the Worlds as narrated and broadcast by Orson Welles now posted.
Below is a slideshow of major headlines that were actually published as a result of the Halloween trick upon the nation. Shows how easily the masses can be manipulated by the media when it is used wrongly. Even though a great success as a show, it caused so much disruption across our nation that it became the focus of much controversy and negative discussions about the proper place of media.
When you read it it's easy to see how politicians in our modern day do"exactly the same thing to move and manipulate the masses with so-called truth and outright lies as a method of winning their way."
Old saying, believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see just might have some truth to it.
