The difference was that we didn't yet have a huge military-industrial complex/national security state, which has become the private army of Wall Street.
Tracy, you hit the nail right on the head when you say,

When an able bodied government of any kind can manipulate the news, radio and TV by stifling it's pertinent facts it then it's information becomes censored by the very propaganda they themselves wish to spread, as we know, it's not the truth.
