Bush 'planted fake news stories on American TV'

Bush 'planted fake news stories on American TV' May 29, 2006, The Independent

Federal authorities are actively investigating dozens of American television stations for broadcasting items produced by the Bush administration and major corporations, and passing them off as normal news. Some of the fake news segments talked up success in the war in Iraq, or promoted the companies' products.

Is anyone surprised? The conservative news media feeds the gullible conservatives just what they want to hear, and very little else. Pathetic.

Edited to add: A nod to supergee who posted this link with a different subject line.
