Pentagon to broadcast to millions of U.S. homes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Big News Network.com Wednesday 9th February, 2005

The U.S. military is to beam its own news coverage to millions of Americans.

Moving on from its phase of embedding journalists, or as some would say, 'a policy of restricting and controlling the flow of information,' the Pentagon will now produce and disseminate the news itself. It will be beamed to the public at no charge. The service will emanate from what is known as the Pentagon Channel, an internal public relations television unit within the Department of Defense. It was set up nine months ago.

The government-run TV service will be channeled to the public through EchoStar Communication's Dish Network which will offer the Pentagon Channel to its more than 11 million viewers on a no-cost basis. Programming will appear on the network's public interest channels and will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Dish viewers will be kept up to date with current military news and information including Department of Defense news briefings, military news, interviews with top defense officials, and short stories about the work of military people.

'We appreciate Dish Network's decision to carry the new Pentagon Channel on their satellite TV system,' said Defense Department spokesman Larry Di Rita. 'Their support helps us fulfill our mission of providing timely military news and information.'

Dish Network? This sounds more like the crap DirecTV would bring to viewers.

My opinion of Dish Network has just dropped, and I will write and tell them so.

Now we have one more channel through which the Bush propoganda can be beamed out to the American people...as though we needed another one.

Maybe, like the Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat, they will eat each other up in competition for ratings. I will stop at that channel about as often as I stop at Faux News!
