This article examines how, early on in the process of establishing its authority base in the 1950s, the Kuomintang government (KMT) formulated a propaganda policy-making core. Crucial to this process was the interaction of propaganda and the mass media in Taiwan during this period. Firstly, the organization of the policy-making core (namely the Propaganda Guidance Committee) will be examined. Secondly, different manipulations of the policy-making core will be analyzed. This article examines how, in the early 1950s, pressure from intelligence agencies regarding the need for core decision-making processes led to the establishment of such processes. The head of the policy-making core at that time was Huang Shao-Ku, a pro-incorporation leader who placed emphasis on interpersonal relationships and use of funds to control publications granted approval by the KMT. He also advocated using party disciplinary action to control contributors. In the late 1950s, under the leadership of Tao Hsi-sheng, suppression became the strategy to deal with press that refused to be incorporated into KMT. From the 1960s on, after authorities punished the independent mass media and its leaders, the propaganda core began to play a larger role in control of the media.
