In a conspiracy which depends upon fraud as a means

In a conspiracy which depends upon fraud as a means, the salesmen of
the conspiratorial group are quite as essential and culpable as the
master planners, even though they may not have contributed
substantially to the formulation of all the basic strategy, but
rather concentrated on making the execution of this strategy
possible. In this case, propaganda was a weapon of tremendous
importance to this conspiracy. Furthermore, the leading propagandists
were major accomplices in this conspiracy, and Fritzsche was one of
them...

"Fritzsche learned a lesson from his predecessor, Berndt, who fell
from the leadership of the German Press Division partly because he
over-played his hand by blunt and excessive manipulation of the
Sudetenland propaganda. Fritzsche stepped into the gap caused by the
loss of confidence of both the editors and the German people, and did
his job with more skill and subtlety. His shrewdness and ability to
be more assuring and 'to find,' as Goebbels said, `willing ears of
the whole nation,'—these things made him the more useful accomplice
of the conspirators...

"Fritzsche is not in the dock as a free journalist but as a
propagandist who helped substantially to tighten the Nazi
stranglehold over the German people, who made the excesses of the
conspirators palatable to the German people, who goaded the German
nation to fury and crime against people they were told by him were
subhuman.

"Without the propaganda apparatus of the Nazi State, the world would
not have suffered the catastrophe of these years, and it is because
of Fritzsche's role in behalf of the Nazi conspirators, and their
deceitful and barbarous practices, that he is called to account
before the International Military Tribunal."

The tribunal found Fritzsche not guilty on the dubious grounds that
he had not had sufficient stature to formulate or originate the
propaganda campaigns undertaken by the Nazi regime. It also asserted
that the prosecution had not proven that Fritzsche was aware of the
extermination of the Jews or had spread news he knew to be false.
(Fritzsche was immediately rearrested and charged by German courts
with various crimes. He was sentenced to nine years at hard labor,
left prison in 1950 and died of cancer three years later.)

The prosecution, in its reply to the "Unfounded Acquittal of
Defendant Fritzsche," returned insistently and pointedly to its
arguments. It noted that the verdict failed to take into account that
Fritzsche was until 1942 "the Director de facto of the Reich Press
and that, according to himself, subsequent to 1942, he became
the 'Commander-in-Chief of the German radio'."

The prosecution went on: "For the correct definition of the role of
defendant Hans Fritzsche it is necessary, firstly, to keep clearly in
mind the importance attached by Hitler and his closest associates (as
Goering, for example) to propaganda in general and to radio
propaganda in particular. This was considered one of the most
important and essential factors in the success of conducting an
aggressive war."

In Hitler's Germany, the reply to the verdict continues, "propaganda
was invariably a factor in preparing and conducting acts of
aggression and in training the German populace to accept obediently
the criminal enterprises of German fascism. ...

"The basic method of the Nazi propagandistic activity lay in the
false presentation of facts. ... The dissemination of provocative
lies and the systematic deception of public opinion were as necessary
to the Hitlerites for the realization of their plans as were the
production of armaments and the drafting of military plans. Without
propaganda, founded on the total eclipse of the freedom of press and
of speech, it would not have been possible for German Fascism to
realize its aggressive intentions, to lay the groundwork and then to
put to practice the war crimes and the crimes against humanity. In
the propaganda system of the Hitler State it was the daily press and
the radio that were the most important weapons."

There is little to be added to this condemnation. While all
historical analogies have their limits, the indictment of the German
media chief for war crimes speaks with great force to the role of the
US media barons in contemporary world affairs.
