I've been reading a book about Nazi Germany. It's funny how things don't change. Back in the 30's, after making a provocative move, Hitler would immediately call in the western press (namely the Times of London, the New York Times, and whatever the big paper in France is). Anyway, he would hold conference with them and just wax on and on about his love of peace and his distaste for war. Naturally, those publications drank this B.S. up went home and published it for an ignorant world to read. These big papers were efectively tying the hands of the west by rallying public sentiment against responding to Germany's provocations. Hitler used to sit back and laugh at how easy it was to manipulate the free press into doing his bidding. Do the Editors of our large news organizations realize that they are once again being used like whores?

Of course not. That said, they, like good little liberals, hate Bush and conservatives in general with every fiber of their beings. The enemy of my enemy is my friend, and consequences be damned.

I've been thinking along those same lines lately. Just out of curiosity, what book are you reading?
