Germany had no real national newspapers in 1933 but had 4700 newspapers. All anti-Nazi newspapers were to become banned and Nazi newspapers would be on public display so that everyone could read them.


Hitler beilieved the spoken word was more effective than the written word so radio was very important. A problem was that much radio was local and expensive so not many household owned one.
