9. The MEDIA is finally owning up to this lazy-ass practice, huh?

They've been getting this kind of stuff E-MAILED on a daily basis from the TAX-EXEMPT Heritage Foundation's Press Room (and their ilk) for many years now.

The media are as guilty as those who create the PR for using them.

It's no accident that the same phrases and talking points make it into our "objective" news.

David Brock spelled out the practice in "The Republican Noise Machine." I highly recommend it to those who haven't read it yet--it's a must for understanding and battling the propaganda machine.
