Tokyo Rose: Worlds Most Notorious Propagandist

During the height of WWII, radio propaganda was rampant on all sides of the war. Every country was out to deceive one another.

 

However, no broadcaster was more famous than Iva Toguri; better known as "Tokyo Rose". Toguri was an American citizen who became stranded in Japan after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

 

The then Japanese government forced her to ‘renounce’ her US citizenship & broadcast Japanese propaganda to the American troops.

 

Little did the Japanese realize, Toguri was actually working to undermine them the entire time by making the news so over the top that none of the American soldiers believed it. Quite the opposite in fact. The so-called 'propaganda' became a welcomed distraction from the monotony of the war.

 

After the war Toguri became only the 7th person in History to become charged with High Treason; she was sentenced to 10 years in prison, but was pardoned by President Ford after only 6 years when the United States uncovered that she was not a Traitor, but in-fact a Hero.
