A Blizzard of Deception

Well, this one pretty much writes itself... from the New York Times.

"Fox News Commentator Joins White House"

I mean, wow, do I really have to say anything?

The Great Leader has appointed Tony "I'm Even Whiter than My Last Name" Snow to the position of Press Secretary. Mr. Snow has opined that the Great Leader's "wavering conservatism has become an active concern among Republicans, who wish he would stop cowering under the bed and start fighting back. The newly passive George Bush has become something of an embarrassment." If tapping every phone in America without warrants is the work of a passive president, cowering under his bed, what exactly would 'fighting back' entail? It sounds to me like Mr. Snow is a fascist's fascist. He is what Mussolini hoped to be when he grew up and stopped wetting his bed.

However "Mr. Snow added, however, that Mr. Bush was 'the only figure who counts in American politics.'" Obviously! He's the Great Leader, he feeds us with his breath and clothes us with his thoughts. His word is law and his anger is love.

According to the Times, "The White House was hoping that Mr. Snow would use his television skills to take better advantage of the daily briefings so often televised live on cable news, giving the administration unfiltered time to push its points of the day."

It's a great idea, really. This way, they can cut the Media out of the loop entirely. I mean the next logical step is for the government to get it's own news channel... and since it will have the most accurate and up-to-date information, they probably ought to ban other media outlets as well, just so no one gets confused or anything.

Actually, what's scary is that the Republican machine has figured out how to control information while ostensibly leaving freedom of speech intact -- this move is so vile precisely for that reason. The White House now has a charismatic, concise, practiced Television voice to deliver its message in easily digestible sound-bites. The Major Media are far too lazy and disinterested in real journalism to do anything other than just repeat these clips ad nauseum without making even the slightest effort to analyze or investigate them. Get ready for twice as many bare-faced lies as ever before.
