A CLASH OF IDEAS:
United States wants a democracy to rise from the cinders of Adolf
Hitler's dictatorship. To insure freedom, Allied military forces
build a privately owned press free of government control in West
Germany. People can read what they want and make up their own minds.
The Soviet Union rebuilds its Berlin sector as a socialistic republic.
The government controls all economic activity, including the media.
News is a teaching tool. People are supposed to read it and learn
what the government wants them to know.
