CNN's allegiance lies where?
You may have seen the story yesterday that originated in the LA Times about how the military purposely gave false information to a reporter about when the action in Falujja started. The supposed purpose was to gauge and understand the reaction on the ground by the enemy and CNN was happy to use its signal to inform the terrorist insurgents that they should run and hide, or load their weapons for American troops were on there way. Interesting that CNN (or anyone) seems to think that essentially warning the enemy was ok, but if that warning was false their having been duped by the US Military in an effort against an enemy is questioned. You have to wonder how things would be in America if the US media didn't participate in the disinformation broadcast during WWII?
