Media Misled By Pentagon-Controlled 'Military Analysts'

On April 20th, the New York Times exposed a secret Pentagon campaign to infiltrate the media with pro-war propaganda.

Supposedly impartial "military analysts" misled the press with pro-war cheerleading masquerading as unbiased analysis.

It's hard to believe such a brazen and undeniable violation of every conceivable standard of journalism -- and possibly of federal law! -- took place in the United States.

The tendrils of this deceptive propaganda campaign reach all the way to the top of the Bush White House. It's about time our government was held accountable for its despicable attempts to sell an untenable war to the American public.

The war in Iraq is about protecting corporate profits, period. The big oil companies and military contractors are making obscene profits on the blood of patriotic American soldiers -- and untold numbers of Iraqis as well.

Free Press Action Fund is gathering 50,000 signatures to tell the Bush Administration to knock it off. This kind of nonsense is what we'd expect of a totalitarian regime like Communist China, not the United States. Sign now!
