Pentagon reaches out to conservative bloggers.

Stocked full of administration cronies, the Pentagons public affairs division under assistant secretary of defense for public affairs Dorrance Smith, has set up a rapid-response project that seeks to bypass the traditional media and work directly with talk radio and bloggers, mostly those with a heavily conservative tilt. Once known as the Surrogates Operation, the project also provides talking points and briefings to retired military officials who now support the administration in appearances as media pundits.
