Propaganda

Did anyone see the NY Times on Sunday? Scary. The front page article was about how the Bush administration's PR dept. has been making videos which look like news segments, but really are just pieces which praise Bush's policies. They have distributed these pieces and news stations will run them! What is happening to journalism?

Check out the article

You know, we really need to start holding media outlets accountable for their role in things like this. Boycott stations that air these propaganda pieces, boycott advertisers on those stations, you know, the whole disgruntled consumer bit. A lot of the current problems with main-stream media can be attributed to the "corporatization" of media. But if they want to run like any other business, that makes them susceptible to the same pressures as any other business, both good and bad.
