The truth or something like it

Dashing off to Iraq with their minds open and their pens independent, a pack of conservative media personalities aim to report their truth. Deanna Swift will join them: "Well, we're off! As you no doubt know by now, I'll soon be on my way to Baghdad, part of a delegation of conservative journalists fed up with the way that the so-called mainstream media poops all over our country (excuse my French!) and this war we're winning.

And instead of holing up in four-star Baghdad hotels like those other reporters (AKA: the 'Bad News Bears'), our Truth gang will be bringing you success stories straight from the source: U.S. Central Command headquarters inside the exclusive Green Zone. (The Swift Report)
