This is not a joke, I repeat, this is not a joke. So what do you say folks, does this fit the bill for a ripe conspiracy? Obama hasn't been liking his recent bad press all too much I am certain. And now suddenly we hear this? Is this country a basket case or what?

Morally upstanding person? Did you all catch the video of Alexander lying through his teeth? Quite frankly, I wouldn't trust him anywhere near a man that owns so many news organizations.



In a statement from News Corporation, Murdoch said Army Gen. Keith Alexander is "an experienced leader with a unique and varied background in information gathering, research and technology -- valuable skills that will help our newspapers continue to provide our readers the information they need long before our competitors do."





"I look forward to Gen. Alexander's contributions to our company's daily pursuit of news and information for our readers," Murdoch said in a statement. "Gen. Alexander is the kind of upright, morally upstanding person who represents the values of News Corporation and our dedication to breaking news before anyone else knows about it."

This sounds like a Minister of Propaganda. No doubt Alexander remains privy to untold demographic information, which may be used by Murdoch to steer public sentiment more than ever. Furthermore, Alexander's shadowy connections will be able to advise Murdoch as to which direction in which to spin issues.
This is yet another example of Government and corporate interests blurred to the point that democracy is rendered ineffectual.

Are you SURE it's not a joke? 'Cause that is one serious punchline on the tragi-comedy of humanity.

Seriously? No joke? No Sorcha Faal or some such?

Yep...we're screwed.

I am sorry did you say something? My jaw is still sagging on the floor and I am sitting here totally perplexed. Please pinch me, did I fall asleep in my computer chair? Yes I am really this shocked.

Anyways, there is no blurring here, they are one and the same. Democracy isn't ineffectual, it is dead.

Hmmm...looks kind of "iffy." One of the sources quotes Alexander:


"This is an amazing opportunity for me," Alexander said in a statement. "While I do not have any background or experience in journalism and newspapers, it will be an interesting change of pace for me to gather news and release it to the public voluntarily, rather than having it get leaked by someone.

That's FUNNY even if it ain't true!!!

Now I missed that since I was so busy being shocked to a pale white hue. That quote is hysterical! Love it!


Now lets see how many other folks we can catch with this joke. My top post will be convincing enough. LOL...

Oh gosh I can't stop laughing now... "Morally upstanding person"....
