"A huge lie repeated often enough is accepted as truth." — Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister PRIMER-Connecticut "Unanswered media bias and misinformation repeated often enough is accepted as truth." — PRIMER
"We will not relinquish any of our principles. Since the Palestinian National Council convention in Algeria in 1988, at which we [declared] a Palestinian state and recognized [UN] Resolutions 242 and 338, what concessions have we made on our principles? We insist on the 1967 borders, Jerusalem as our capital, and the refugees' rights according to the UN resolutions, especially [Resolution] 194. Our rights to water are also recognized by international law. Not a single word of our documents has been changed, from then to this very day. It has not happened and will not happen." — Mahmoud Abbas, leader of the Palestinian Authority and the Fatah and PLO terror groups. Al Ayyam, September 6, 2010.

Trend Reports

PRIMER-Connecticut periodically prepares a detailed three to six month daily analysis of each news article, editorial and op-ed and presents it to the editor/publisher of the state's largest newspaper for review. This opens the door for an opportunity o personally meet with the editors to discuss the contents of the review. These "Trend Reports," properly developed, effectively sensitize editors and publishers.
