Propaganda State

This is an interesting opinion piece from an interesting news source.
The Agonist | thoughtful, global, timely: "The Iraq war was sold on lies. How it occured was simple - someone in the administration, or one of their mouthpieces in the media would make a claim (remember the 'drones of death?'). The claim would be frontpage news and on the networks. In a few days it would be debunked (the drones of death turned out to be oversize model airplanes), but that wouldn't get mentioned in the media prominently - in the newspapers it would be buried on the back pages and it often wasn't mentioned on the cable networks at all."
