Thanks to Thom Bassett for bringing this follow-up article by Glenn Greenwald to my attention. This is more than another article on Wikileaks. It is an analysis of the corrupted role of American journalism in ensuring that we remain ignorant of what our government, in collusion with other powerful interests, is actually doing.
In the article there are links to a number of other cogent analyses of the disinformation propagated (propagated, as in propaganda) by a fawning fourth estate that ought to be the protector of our right to know what is being done in our name.
Maybe we should charge Bin Laden with a broken condom in a Swedish bedroom? Maybe he got laid in Sweden while he was negotiating to buy some yellowcake uranium?
Get Judith Miller on the phone! WMD's anyone?
