Here is the media creating their own spin on revelations of the US military feeding stories to Iraqi new agencies, complete with payment. Why on earth would this create suprise? The media are playing it as a shock story “Oh my God, the US military are planting stories in Iraq. That is a threat to the democracy we stand for.” Yeah right. Anyone who believes that the media in the Western world (let alone in countries with puppet rulers) is free and not influenced by governments, big business and personal adgendas needs their head examined. Of course stories are planted and those that aren’t complete fabrication are spun beyond all recognition of the facts until an agenda, someones agenda, is fulfilled. In a war situation one of the first things any side will do is control the flow of information. It just makes sense. Why do you think Bush wanted to bomb Al Jazerra? Read the shocking story here.
