NYT: Pentagon and White House fed co-opted pro-war military analysts to the media

Surprise! Gee, the media never could have imagined that the Bush administration would try to spin them, trick them, and lie to them. I mean, at least at this point I just expect Bush and his cohorts to lie to us and manipulate the media, but for the media to still let this happen, and then act surprised when it does? Come on. Big story in today’s NYT. Oh, and another big surprise. Now the analysts are suddenly all concerned that the DOD tried to compromise their integrity. Yeah, they didn’t seem too worried about it until the NYT came calling.
