"Lord Bell ran $540m covert PR ops in Iraq for Pentagon"
The communications agency founded by Margaret Thatcher’s PR guru Lord Bell was hired by the US military to orchestrate a huge $540m “covert” propaganda campaign in Iraq after the 2003 invasion.
In what is believed to be one of the world’s most costly PR contracts, equivalent to £416m, staff from Bell’s agency were based in Baghdad to disseminate pro-coalition material across the airwaves.

That's just one set of and endless series.
I don't think the US needs help getting fake news on Page 1 lede.
Governments don't produce capital, they only consume it!
He says. On the internet.
Never is a long time, human nature isn't static, and you don't know what you are talking about. but this is Slashdot so I guess that goes without saying.
What are you even talking about?
These systems have been around forever, SpaceX is (once again) doing nothing new or special. They only work when there is forewarning, and that is unlikely to be had during a fueling mishap. This isn't a cartoon or action movie, you can't just outrun an explosion in progress by jumping fast and wearing cool shades.
Huh. I guess white people are a minority, worldwide. And soon to be just another minority here at home, thankfully. Being a majority does weird things to people's heads. Like making them think they can put words in other people's mouths.
Yeah, but it was a racist who sent out that memo so it doesn't count.
I don't think NAFTA made any sort of provisions for corporations to sue the government. It has a system for adjudication of issues related to NAFTA, but nothing specifically like what CETA has. Of course, if you have sources that say otherwise then I will admit to being misinformed.
Read up on Investor State Tribunals in CETA here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
Basically it allows corporations to sue states in arbitrary "tribunals" if a state violates its Non Discriminatory Treatment obligations (CETA, section 3, p 156 f) or because of a violation of the guaranteed investment protection.
So corporations can claim that environmental protection laws are arbitrary and give unfair advantages to domestic companies that comply with those laws, while penalizing foreign companies that do not comply.
The fear is that corporations will claim, "You are only enacting those environmental, worker protection, and social justice laws to penalize us, it's just code for 'protect local business.'" This is a realistic fear because it has happened before.
If we just put glowing pots of embers in the right position, along this long clearing, will the giant silver dragons come back?
You also need the very tall hut - positioned just so. And you need the priest who motions with the sacred rods, to coax the landed dragon into repose. Then? He will disgorge his gifts from heaven, once again.
I believe I observed the ritual of those rods. I know the signs to be made with them.
But have you fully understood the meaning of the incantation, "Roger, one-niner. I copy. Over."?
He should have been bigger than Tom Cruise.
I had a sandboxed app break out, and WALKS ACROSS THE TABLE!
Just yesterday. I mean, this was in test - but conceivably, it could be made in to a feature, at scale, in production.
Human blob of motorized screen-junkie, full of HFC, HERE I COME!
