Public Relations! Its so politically correct. This is information produced by the government or by private corporations the government contracts, to create and distribute information to persuade the opinion of the public. The same public that puts these authority figures into power. We pay the government to set up campaigns to tell us what we should think and we elect them according to the views they manipulated us with and then give them power to act on their will. Does protecting their doctrine really have anything to do with us?
pl.n. Abbr. PR
1. (used with a sing. verb) The art or science of establishing and promoting a favorable relationship with the public.
We are clearly losing the war in Iraq and spawning an increase in international “terrorism” and yet the government is implanting “favorable” fake news stories into a seemingly normal network news broadcast to persuade the minds of the people. The government must spend billions of dollars on PR or the American public will get mislead. The question is, is it working? There is no favorable news coming out of Iraq because there are no favorable conditions there.

There is very little independent, non-biased, truth telling, source printing the facts, the facts which are the news.

But wait! Didn’t Rumsfeld say back in ’01 that the regime wouldn’t target the news media?
Q: Sir, is it correct that yesterday, you terminated efforts by the administration to start an information operations campaign related to this? And can you assure that there is no information operations campaign targeted at the news media?
Rumsfeld: Well, you can be certain there is no campaign targeted at the news media.
