CAUGHT: Pentagon pundits on TV news

Tell Congress: Investigate the Propaganda Pundits

The New York Times has exposed a secret Pentagon campaign to infiltrate the media with pro-war propaganda.

The scheme reaches all the way to the Bush White House, where top officials recruited dozens of "military analysts" to spread favorable views of the war via the news. Many of these propaganda pundits didn't reveal that they were working from Pentagon scripts or lobbying for companies seeking to cash in on major military contracts.

This is a violation of every conceivable standard of journalism -- and possibly of federal law.
