Now and Then
What if today's media covered World War II?
Dec. 12, 1941: The City Council
of Berkeley, Calif. approves,
by 5-4, a resolution condemning as "warmongering" the recent
U.S. declaration of war on Japan. In a statement, the council
deplores "violence as a means of settling international
disputes" and urges President Roosevelt to "sit down with the
Japanese ambassador in Washington" and "enter into a meaningful,
non-gender or race-based dialogue."
Dec. 13, 1941: In an article
for the New Yorker, Mavis Montag
suggests that the U.S. "has only itself to blame" for the
attack on Pearl Harbor. However, she expresses satisfaction
that America is now formally at war with Germany and will thus
"be forced to aid the heroic struggle of the Soviet Union."

from Jan 6, 1942 saying that
"Media Frustrated at lack of US Victory in WWII. How long
is this thing going to drag out demand new kind of
commentators called talking heads."]
Jan. 30, 1942: In an interview
on "Good Morning Nippon," a
Japanese bomber pilot wounded over Pearl Harbor denounces
the American Navy's attempt to defend itself from the attack.
"They should have accepted our bombs as divine will," says
Murama Takaji, 22, who appears on the popular morning show
with both arms in a sling. He says that once he recovers
he hopes to join the elite Divine Wind ("kamikaze") squadron.
"It would be a great honor to crash into an American ship,"
he says. "I hear there are many pretty geishas in the next

Feb. 7, 1942: The head of ABC
News retracts revelation of
Doolittle mission. "I misspoke," he says. "There actually
is no secret plan to launch B-25 bombers off aircraft
carriers to bomb Tokyo on April 18. Really."
[Feb 18 1942 Headline - "Critics
worried WWII could turn
out to be a "quagmire"]

April 20, 1942: Officials from
the Japanese Imperial
Ministry of Propaganda and Dissimulation give American
reporters a tour of areas of Tokyo damaged in the
Doolittle raid. According to the officials, all bombs
missed military targets, landing instead on nursery
schools, hospitals, temples, infant formula factories
and schools for handicapped children.
April 21, 1942: The head of the
United Notions expresses
"grave concern" over civilian casualties in yesterday's
Doolittle raid over Tokyo. "If there are to be any more
of these so-called 'daring' raids over Japanese population
centers," he says, "American pilots must be more sensitive
to collateral damage."
