Iraq: US gov fake news mania causes concern

"WASHINGTON (AP) - Demands for details from the White House and Congress were building Thursday over a U.S. military program whose multimillion-dollar contracts include money for paying Iraqi newspapers and journalists to plant favorable stories about the war and rebuilding effort. [...] "We're very concerned," said White House spokesman Scott McClellan. "We are seeking more information from the Pentagon."

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., slammed the program a devious scheme that "speaks volumes about the president's credibility gap. If Americans were truly welcomed in Iraq as liberators, we wouldn't have to doctor the news for the Iraqi people."

I think this story has actually been around for a while. It is just another part of the hideous reckless meltdown of reality going on, but well I guess we now know where at least some of the al-Zarqawi crap comes from.

The UK isn't immune either apparently.

It has been around for a while and should come as no surprise. In war propaganda is one of the most powerful weapons deployed.

But to go and pay journalists to publish stories?? They are very, very desperate indeed.

I agree, they are desperate, and I don't think this fake news thing has just been confined to Iraq either...
