NY Times reports on media manipulation by Pentagon

You could call it a bombshell if what the New York Times is reporting now were not already well known by skeptical observers, but it’s significant that the Times is reporting it, and that it’s being picked up by TV outlets. The big news is that “military experts” who have been been giving “objective analysis” of Bush’s war on TV outlets have essentially been planted by the Pentagon to put out positive spin.

Thanks, New York Times, but where were you in 2002? 2000? 2004?

  1. To me, the larger issue isn’t so much that the Pentagon was trying to shape the message (this is the first administration headed by an MBA, afterall), but the acquiescence/complicity of the corporate new$ media outlets themselves.
