FOX EXPOSED: The Pentagon is Alright!

Even after The New York Times exposed a secret Pentagon campaign to infiltrate the media with pro-war propaganda, FOX News continues to pretend that pundits like Robert H. Scales and Thomas McInerney are both objective and reliable experts. This is disgraceful, and it's largely due to the fact that the mainstream press hasn't followed up on the NY Times piece.

The scheme reaches all the way to the Bush White House, where top officials recruited dozens of "military analysts" to spread favorable views of the war via the news. Many of these propaganda pundits didn't reveal that they were working from Pentagon scripts or lobbying for companies seeking to cash in on major military contracts. This is a violation of every conceivable standard of journalism -- and possibly of federal law.

Tell Congress: Investigate the Propaganda Pundits!
