Pentagon boosts 'media war' unit

BBC NEWS | World | Americas | Pentagon boosts 'media war' unit: "Pentagon boosts 'media war' unit
US troops in Iraq
US officials believe bad news from Iraq gets undue coverage
The US defence department has set up a new unit to better promote its message across 24-hour rolling news outlets, and particularly on the internet.

The Pentagon said the move would boost its ability to counter 'inaccurate' news stories and exploit new media.

Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said earlier this year the US was losing the propaganda war to its enemies."

"Correct" the news? Sounds like a giant propaganda machine to me. Indoctrinate the American people, hide reality, and then lead them like the sheeple that they are. Haven't they noticed that some Americans woke up and voted in numbers too large for them to change the election outcomes easily? Hopefully, the general population will "smarten up" some more.
