In the World War I, the British government were considered to have used propaganda tools to motivate the people against Germany. The Nazi Party used the mass media to develop power base and consolidate their position during 1930. The Nazi Party was used this to control the people. It was alluded during this time that the power of the particular nation depends on the ways in which the new is handled. In the cases of the Nazi Party, there is the use of racial stereotyping and encouragement to promote racial discrimination and fear using the news outlets. The fear was promulgated to the people.
In addition, the people were made to think that they were under attack. This was done by the use of the media tool. The media tool and the power of the news media outlets have controlled the governance and the ways in which the people perceive information. Owing to this, the people have been increasingly dependent on the news outlets to develop perception of the issues. The same kind of trend has been observed in the current times. The current technology has been an important tool for the promulgation of the media. It is found that there is growing prominence to the news outlets in the current times. The ways of this dissemination of the news have however changed in the times.
In the current times, the growth of the technology had led to further fuelling of the fire. The growth in revolution by the mass communication led to the formation of a newer propaganda. This was found to grow in scale and persuasive power. This invariably led to a series of major ideological struggles in the society. A small group of people in social media are reducing the credibility of the news outlets. A small group of people use the social media interaction and the algorithm. Using this, they create hyperbolic articles and profess their own ideology.
