Who says an enterprising reporter can't make a living? Why, you can work on the side for the Pentagon, Department of Education, etc., while you're pretending to be objective...:


MEDIA FAILS TO REVEAL NAMES OF JOURNALISTS SHILLING FOR PENTAGON
http://www.editorandpublisher.com/eandp ... 1000789872


AP - The [Pentagon's] Balkans Web site has articles and commentary by
about 50 journalists who . . . are paid by European Command through a
private contractor, Anteon Corp., an information technology company
based in Fairfax, Va. . .

Kaufman said information warfare experts at European Command do not
edit the stories written by contributing journalists for Southeast European
Times, but they "review" the stories after they are processed by Anteon
editors, and they sometimes change the headlines. . .

About 50 paid correspondents contribute to Southeast European Times,
including one American journalist based in Sarajevo, Bosnia, Kaufman
said. Another European Command spokesman, Air Force Maj. Sarah
Strachan, said many of the journalists work primarily for news organizations, although she said the details of those employers could not be provided for privacy reasons. :

Hiyas Ben,
Interesting article. It would be better if we could find out who are the shills...

Any idea how?

Stripes,

In this case, the "right to privacy" seems to outweighs the "public's right to know," according to the article.
