Snippet: Friday marked the start of operation “Shock and Awe” (don’t we mean Schlock & Whore?), where 1,000 cruise missiles were fired on Baghdad. The Snowmail, a regular news email from presenter Jon Snow commented on this an a number of other issues – worth a read if you’re interested in a slightly more realistic take on things.
The disinfo seems to be flying thick and fast – on the news we have Iraqi doctors showing hundreds of civilian casualties, “official” sources claiming huge advances, news sources refuting this…its all quite worrying. [tbc]
