Liberal Blogger & Journalist Shows How Most News Is Controlled For Political Purposes

A writer describes what happened after he wrote a critique of Obama’s Afghan strategy at ThinkProgress.org: But then phone calls from the White House started pouring in, berating my bosses for being critical of Obama on this policy. Obama’s advisor Ben Rhodes — speaking of a staffer who follows policy set by others for his career path — even made a post on the White House blog more or less attacking my chart by fudging the numbers and including both the Iraq and Afghan troop levels in a Read more […]
