I got a kick out of this article at zerohedge. It describes the declassified papers generated by the father of lies itself (CIA) that used the American press and some of its more feeble minded reporters as dupes in the propaganda war against the USSR and communism. It was only last night that I was looking at the backgrounds and accomplishments of the dupes that won distinction by earning the Lenin Peace Prize. I suppose this country hands out the Presidential Medal of Freedom for its major dupes.
If Diogenes set out in search of an honest press over 2000 years ago, he'd still be searching for one to this day.
