Behind TV Analysts, Pentagon's Hidden Hand


www.nytimes.com

To the public, these men are members of a familiar fraternity, presented tens of thousands of times on television and radio as “military analysts” whose long service has equipped them to give authoritative and unfettered judgments about the most pressing issues of the post-Sept. 11 world.

Hidden behind that appearance of objectivity, though, is a Pentagon information apparatus that has used those analysts in a campaign to generate favorable news coverage of the administration’s wartime...

The effort, which began with the buildup to the Iraq war and continues to this day, has sought to exploit ideological and military allegiances, and also a powerful financial dynamic: Most of the analysts have ties to military contractors vested in the very war policies they are asked to assess on air.


Trust the media. It's totally fair and balanced.
Completely objective and unbiased, right?

Indeed....Our MSM situation is beyond polluted---It's totally infiltrated and corrupted. They are nothing more than propegandized mouthpieces and puppets for the people who REALLY run this country---The Corporations and Military Industrial Complex. "Free" Press is a total laugh when it comes to the major networks: They are all bought and paid for by the pukes ruining our country.

This article, brilliantly written by DAVID BARSTOW, is the proof of what many have been feeling and saying for some time. All these analysts were just talking heads supporting the Bush Administration's lies, and Bush supporters swallowed their lies hook, line and sinker.

The truth is coming out. These men have not only disgraced their personal honor, but have disgraced their respective Service and Uniform. They knowingly lied to the American people, and are partly responsible for the deaths every American servicemen who gave their life so these traitors could fill their pockets with more money.

Between Bush, the media, and these clowns... we HAVE been hosed.
