    FEMA has its own employees pose as reporters to lob softballs at a press conference. Genius!

    That's one of the things that really disturbs me about the current group of shitheads running our country, this whole sort of co-opting of the press to get the message out (see also: the Armstrong Williams payola thing, video press releases, "Jeff Gannon" being allowed in the White House, even though he was a male whore). I pray to God that whoever gets elected in '08 he or she doesn't allow things to go down this Pravda-like path.

    They also hired journalists (propagandists) in Iraq. Anyone else remember that?

    Jeez, those guys running FEMA are so incompetent ... they'll probably move on to become publishers and executive editors.

    You should feel shame -- on general principle -- but this deserved its own thread.
