Bribes for Iraq Reporters

Here we go again. The Bush Administration got caught paying off reporters here in the US to write favorable articles about them and programs they are trying to push. They wanted to control the media and make the public believe what they wanted them to believe. That's called propaganda. It's also illegal.

Now we find out they aqre paying off Iraqi Reporters to report favorable news about the US in Iraqi newspapers. No reason we should be surprised since they did the same thing here in the US.

It can be argued that propaganda is a good tool when we are at war and had the bush administration only done that I would be supportive. However, they did it here in the US as well, so it only shows a pattern of this administration to put out lies to everyone dating back to the reports of WMDs in Iraq and saddam's involvement in terrorism.

More things that just piss me off
