James Corbett looks into the public relations firm Hill and Knowlton which has a history of crafting narratives to influence the public. Hill and Knowlton created ‘Nayirah’, a story about Kuwaiti soldiers throwing babies from their incubators. Bush Sr, the president at the time repeated the false story numerous times which helped garner public support for the first Gulf War.
It was later found out the woman telling the story was not a nurse but part of the Kuwaiti Royal Family and her Father who coached her was the Kuwaiti ambassador to the United States. The story of babies being thrown from incubators never happened.
60 Minutes would later investigate Nayirah propaganda
