Another real shocker in the works: that embedded journalists are given a biased view of Iraq

I still can't get over what's billed as an important revelation, that Pentagon spokesfigures who were retired who were hired as commentators were really part of a propaganda program. This seems so self evident that it just floors me that folks can still think that it's a real shocker. Like I said, next thing you know there'll be revelations that the practice of embedding journalists with troops is really a strategy by the Pentagon to spin news their way. And then shocking news that, well, that sometimes governments lie.
