Katharine Phillips: Propaganda
She suspected the enemy of using propaganda, but not the U.S. government.
Interview outtakes from THE WAR:
"When it comes to propaganda, we suspected our enemies of it, but we never figured we were using propaganda. We felt like our country was too honest to use propaganda on us, and we honestly were not conscious that they were. Again, it's something we've found out since. The Germans and the Japanese were our enemies. We just didn't like 'em. It didn't matter if they made 'em out to be the King of England. We didn't like them. They were mean, they were killing our boys, and we actually didn't need propaganda films. We were mad enough at 'em just by sheer nature to...we, they didn't have to make us mad. We were there. The entire thing had made America mad."
