National Propaganda Radio
I've noticed that the BBC has been carrying Bush junta water since the David Kelly scandal. I suspect that Blair has threatened them with fininshing the job that Thatcher began on them if they don't do his patron's bidding. Has his son finished up his term interning for the Republicans here? One suspects that he made many useful connections.
New Labor. Ha.
By the way, I have frequently heard KPFA lazily repeat Pentagon talking points during its newscasts, too.
Same for BBC, olvlzl.
I don't expect any news source to be perfect. Any story needs to be evaluated by historical context, by comparison with other current information and, most importantly, by how successfully it predicts future events.
There is a real risk when people lose faith in media. As with the boy crying "wolf," a media that lies risks the people ignoring real danger.
