ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the differing views of journalists Jed Horne and Dick Rosse on the Berlin Wall in Germany. Horne of "Life" attacks the building of the Wall. He considers the fortification as a remarkably effective prison to keep subjects penned in. He added that the Wall served as a mechanics of oppression. On the other hand, Rosse of the "Washington Post" defends the Wall, saying that the rationale for the wall was entirely defensive, that is, the Wall served as a barricade thrown up against the threat of invasion.
