Propaganda Run Amok

It's not enough that our government paid so-called journalists in this country to play nice with them (Maggie Gallagher, Armstrong Williams), but we're also doing it in Iraq.

Not that a little good news coming out of Iraq is a bad thing. It's just that it should be news, and not some planted story put there by the Ministry of Truth to make the average Iraqi in the Baghdad street think that we're the fucking liberators or whatever.

Truth be told, I don't think we're fooling the average Iraqi in the streets of Baghdad. Would you be fooled if you read in the paper that the strangers kicking in your door and setting off willy-peter rockets up your ass was actually your friend, come to liberate you from the evil dictator?

Yeah, me neither.
