"Mission Accomplished" on White House Propaganda

Remember the infamous "Mission Accomplished" speech delivered by bush? The White House doesn't want you to:





And they pay people to produce this ignorant stuff?

Don't worry Bush! We will make sure the original video is well documented for historians' use... We wouldn't want future generations of American kids to get the wrong idea concerning the type of incompetent preznit you are.

(UPDATE)Infidel points out in the comments that this may be a hoax:

What an irony that the guy does what he accuses others of.


Irony indeed.

But it still does not change the fact that the Bush administration has used propaganda over and over, whether it is paying TV personalities (Williams, etc.) to push their talking points, or pushing GOP talking points through the MSM, or phonecalls to supress voters, or more recent plans to put lipstick on the Iraq pig AGAIN by the Pentagon.

Pentagon memo reveals launch of new PR war
WASHINGTON - The Pentagon is buttressing its public relations staff and starting an operation akin to a political campaign war room as Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld faces intensifying criticism over the Iraq war.

In a memo obtained by the Associated Press, Dorrance Smith, assistant secretary of defense for public affairs, said new teams of people will "develop messages" for the 24-hour news cycle and "correct the record."

...Another branch would coordinate "surrogates." In political campaigns, surrogates are usually high-level politicians or key interest groups who speak or travel on behalf of a candidate or an issue.

The plan would focus more resources on so-called new media, such as the Internet and Weblogs. It would also include new workers to book civilian and military guests on television and radio shows.
