CAUGHT RED-HANDED: Pentagon-scripted TV News Interviews

The News and The Truth are not the same thing.
-Walt Lippman

April 26, 2008 — The New York Times has exposed a secret Pentagon campaign to infiltrate the media with pro-war propaganda. The scheme reaches all the way to the Bush White House, where top officials recruited dozens of "military analysts" to spread favorable views of the war via the news.

Many of these propaganda pundits didn't reveal that they were working from Pentagon scripts or lobbying for companies seeking to cash in on major military contracts.

Matt Thompson of Free, a group that advocates for media reform reports this is a violation of every conceivable standard of journalism — and possibly of federal law.

The Bush Administration, caught red-handed - makes the scripting the "official 9/11 story" easier to understand.
