More On Gannon / Propagandagate

More On Gannon / Propagandagate

Raw Story has an update on the Propagandagate issue. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has broken her silence, granting an interview to Raw Story.

This week, Jay Rosen said:
"Now the trail has led to Jeff Gannon, and In the Press Room of the White House that is Post Press. As far as I'm concerned, it is all one story. But I do not pretend to understand it yet."
I agree. The Right began their push to turn free press into a tool for their propaganda over 20 years ago, and dismantling their "handiwork" will take a lot of committed concentration and effort on the part of citizens like you and me. It has become apparent that we cannot depend upon the mainstream media to save themselves.

If there's one thing that's certain, it is that any person who holds a strong conviction regarding a truly free press will need to be vigilant in days, months, and perhaps years to come.

Jeff Gannon (aka James Dale Guckert) was only a drop in an ocean of right-wing propaganda which has been employed, whether directly or not, by the Bush administration like no other administration in the past.

Any self-respecting American with a healthy respect for freedom and truth, regardless of their respective political party, should be ashamed to defend the participatory destruction of the "Fourth Estate" by this White House.
