Media mendacity and manipulaton

November 28, 2006

Curt at Flopping Aces is doing some great work investigating the “sources” of so many of the horror stories that continue to flow out of Iraq.

It’s important because our understanding of the war is — except for blogs like Iraq the Model — almost exclusively shaped by what the media believes, or chooses to believe, and what they choose to tell us. For all we know, the reality could be completely different.

The information space is hostage to journalists who believe everything they’re told if it gives them a story, and disbelieve anything that doesn’t.
