scary stuff !

New York Times > Washington

Under Bush, a New Age of Prepackaged TV News - federal agencies are producing "news" reports by the barrel. The only solution is to require a visible "FEDERALLY FUNDED VIDEO" tag not just before or after, but during all such videos. Viewers ought to be informed. If the government chooses to not produce such pieces knowing they will be identified, then we are so much better off for it. Otherwise, at least we'll know the score.
