US spending $20M on new propaganda
Snip from Washington Post story:
Quote:

U.S. military leaders in Baghdad have put out for bid a two-year, $20 million public relations contract that calls for extensive monitoring of U.S. and Middle Eastern media in an effort to promote more positive coverage of news from Iraq.

The contract calls for assembling a database of selected news stories and assessing their tone as part of a program to provide "public relations products" that would improve coverage of the military command's performance, according to a statement of work attached to the proposal.

Yesterday the White House whined to the Washington Post that their critics were trying to smear them with inaccurate labels. :

Quote:

Many Democrats accuse the president of advocating “stay the course” in Iraq, but the White House rejects the phrase and regularly emphasizes that it is adapting tactics to changing circumstances, such as moving more U.S. troops into Baghdad recently after a previous security strategy appeared to fail.




The White House "rejects the phrase"??? WTF? It must be that damned liberal media at it again. Check out the video on this page (with transcript and references).
