  •  The war reporters were "embedded" (7+ / 0-)

    their job during the war was to do the cheer-leading on behalf of our military. Remember the embellished story of Jessica Lynch. In the end we heard the truth from Jessica herself.

    The role of the establishment media stenographers in the lead-up to the war was to promote the establishment's agenda with lies, misinformation and propaganda just as they normally do.

    This appears to be the same system we have in place today.
