"The strategic communication problem is to make good news as entertaining as bad news," says a new report by the Defense Science Board, a senior-level Pentagon advisory panel that normally looks at science and technology issues.
...But what is strange about this report (and perhaps the majority of reports I've seen on strategic communication) is that it discusses the issue as if convincing people to like the United States is a matter of simply crafting the right messages.

The question i have is since their is not good "economic" news will they start putting more "heart warming commercials and story's on the air" to get people feeling better in general? And do they think if people are "happier they will spend more", or they won't demand a gov't solution which can not be given?
