Teaching Democracy Through Fake News

The LATimes broke this story today, that the U.S. military has gone all Armstrong Williams on the poor, unsuspecting Iraqis, that is to say, PAYING newspapers to print fake "news" about how well everything's going for the U.S. against the insurgency. (Thanks to Carl for the link.)

It's a good lesson in American "freedom and democracy," no doubt. Truth is what you can pay for.
