This chapter discusses several instances when black-and-white propaganda were employed. Despite the Cabinet committee's sudden reluctance to suspend the BBC Charter, Duff Cooper's control of white propaganda was taking shape. He told Dalton he would ‘tie up the Ministry and the BBC into what is really one team’. This chapter explores some danger that the propaganda debate might get into the newspapers. When the invasion of Russia began on June 22, it was already likely that whatever concessions the MOI obtained from the Services would not be important. In any case, the invasion prevented the political crisis in Britain which Monckton had expected in the event of a closer Nazi-Soviet alliance. It notes that propaganda was not so strictly tied to British military credibility, that is, to ‘news control’.
