Posted: 29 Nov 2007

"One is reminded of the manner in with [sic] the Voice of America, with its soft and unobtrusive messages actually managed to make capitalism almost synonymous with democracy in popular perception, and communism the opposite of whatever democracy stands for. Crude and raw assaults from all the Soviet propaganda machineries were literally reduced to dwarfs against the more sophisticated campaign by the capitalist world as represented by the VOA." Kangla Online (Imphal), 29 November 2007.
