I wonder if an shit will hit the fan with this story.

The Bush Administration is being investigated for producing “ready made” television news packages in which actors were paid to pose as journalists, it emerged today.
But Federal investigators have launched an investigation into whether the adverts were “propaganda”, amid allegations that they were an attempt to “manipulate the press”.
Bill Kovach, chairman of the Committee of Concerned Journalists, told the newspaper that the Government-made “news” items were “the next thing to fraud”.

“It’s running a paid advertisement in the heart of a news program,” he said.
If they don't get screwed on this issue, I don't think they will ever get screwed. Seriously, manipulating the media in such a direct manner... sounds kinda...illegal.

Maybe next they could run a story about a boy who is all excited cause bush saved his life in an ol' fashioned western shootout. Or about the time that georgie pulled a kitten out of a tree. Maybe they could run a story about the time that george proved to the world that he didn't go AWOL. He could have a whole heap of 'experts' standing around in glasses looking at offical looking documents while nodding and saying 'hoom'. That would be believable. I should be part of the spin doctors.

'Princes, do ba do do baby, just go ahead now...'

(And I hope at least one person gets that last joke... I'm not just wierd, I swear it.)
