Leaflet by Knabb discussing the media's coverage of the Gulf War. "The orchestration of the Gulf War was a glaring expression of what situationists call the spectacle – the development of modern society to the point where images dominate life. The PR campaign was important as the military one. How this or that tactic would play in the media became a major strategical consideration." [Ford 194].
