Bush Administration Manipulated Military TV Analysts!: Report


rawstory.com

The administration of President George W. Bush has manipulated military analysts working for leading US television networks to generate favorable coverage of the war in Iraq and other issues, The New York Times reported on its website Saturday.

The newspaper said in trying to achieve its goal, the administration exploited not only ideological and military allegiances but also a powerful financial dynamic, namely the fact that most of these analysts have ties to military contractors vested in the very war policies they are asked to assess on television.

Kudos to the New York Times!!!

They have totally uncovered how absolutely sickeningly CROOKED these bastards are! Totally BUSTED spewing our PURE PROPEGANDA with the help of infiltrated and co-spiratory crooked media talking heads on their payroll!

We are getting DUALLY SHAFTED, not only by these lying criminals in the Whitehouse, but also by their bought and paid for, propeganda-spewing media shills!



The conclusion came following The Times' examination of 8,000 pages of e-mail messages, transcripts and records describing years of private briefings, trips to Iraq and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that the paper obtained after winning a lawsuit against the Pentagon.

These records reveal a symbiotic relationship where the usual dividing lines between government and journalism have been obliterated, the paper said.

Internal Pentagon documents repeatedly refer to the military analysts as "message force multipliers" or "surrogates" who could be counted on to deliver administration "themes and messages" to millions of Americans "in the form of their own opinions."

My problem is that they are trying to say that this is isolated to the military experts used for gitmo. How about the entire mainstream media, or if you don't want to go that far, how about at least the entire Fox News Network?

This really seems like par for the course for this administration. Of all the crap that they have done, this one is kind of a no brainer to me.

Glad to see this coming out in to the open. Hopefully this won't be swept under the rug never to hear of it again. Let's hear some cries from the general public for accountability.
