vik's Journal: US PSy-Ops US$300m budget for worldwide propaganda

The US Special Operations Command is spending US$300 million on planting pro-American stories in the world's press - something which it has declared illegal to do in its own newspapers, but apparently is OK to do in the rest of the world. The funding is divided into three US$100 million contracts with the Lincon Group, Science Applications International Corp., and SYColeman. The former are currently under investigation regarding the paid articles in the Iraqi press.

This will make it very hard to take any pro-American news seriously.
