“Government Promises to Stop Lying Because of Drudge Report Spotlight”
“In a groveling public display earlier this week, the Department of Defense announced plans to increase its public affairs efforts due to the devastating effect independent media is having on the Pentagon’s ability to control its news, more specifically, its ability to quash negative news stories before they go viral.
“..we cannot hide our bad news stories. Bad news gets out one way or the other and we must come to terms with telling bad stories as well as the good,” the secretary of defense for public affairs, George Little, stated.
“When bad things happen, the American people should hear it from us, not as a scoop on the Drudge Report,” Little said.
In essence, this is a signal of defeat to the power that is independent media, and shows just how large of an effect it is having. Alex Jones lends his analysis:
“Just as the term ‘Google’ became synonymous with ‘search engine,’ DrudgeReport.com has become the catchword for all independent forms of journalism alive on the web today.””
