At what are we to believe coming from our “Military Analysts” that we see on Fix News, CccpNN, and pMSNBC. Especially from pMSNBC, being that it’s the most disgusting of the big three cable “news” channels.
The effort, which began with the buildup to the Iraq war and continues to this day, has sought to exploit ideological and military allegiances, and also a powerful financial dynamic: Most of the analysts have ties to military contractors vested in the very war policies they are asked to assess on air.
Now, I do understand that this story is around 10 days old. And that’s a long time in the 24hour news cycles we live in. But this needs to be looked into more. And don’t give me this crap that it’s coming from the “NY Slimes”. It still needs to be looked into.
I hate to say it, but three cheers to Arianna Huffington for doing some great reporting on this. Her latest post “Why won’t the media pursue the Pentagon Propaganda Scandal?”
Insteand of going after the nonsense of “The Rev. Wright non-Story”, I suggest you start looking into this. I doubt it, being that “If we question our military, we are un-patriotic”. And that, is like being labeled a “racsists, anti-semite”, and a whole host of other things.
Update: Looks like Kelley Vlahos had the same idea over at the American Conservative blog. He call’s the Pentagon’s Pimps, MFM’s or “Message Force Multipliers”. I like that.
