Oh, my, my, my. There's a really nice chunk of news going on, right this very second- and there's a free education also being offered to all serious citizens in the "reality" of how "news" reaches us.
The Washington Post, this morning, featured as its Front Page Top Headline- a story - and audio recording- apparently stemming from Bob Woodward (remember Watergate? yeah; him.) In the "Style" section.
The recording is of a very, very private conversation - in Afghanistan; in the office of General Petraeus. You can hear them say "are your ears off?" They weren't off. It's a flat offer from Rupert Murdoch to "bankroll" a Presidential candidacy by Petraeus. Run by the current head of Fox News.
Yep. Read all about it. Woodward's story here. Also in "Style"; but a featured top headline. For a few hours.
If you go to The Washington Post website right this minute- not one word of all this is in any headline- it's been removed. At least- they haven't removed the links; but you have to search for them.
Are you hearing about it elsewhere? Only if you search. Yes, ABC and CBS have picked it up- but you won't find it on their headlines.
I think- tomorrow - you will. But at the moment- someone is VERY very ticked off- and pressure has been brought to bear, to bury it. For a while. But this one is SO not going to go away.
Oh, so many questions. Why is Fox News advising our top General? Why are they asking him to write their headlines? (They did.) Why is Rupert Murdoch offering to "bankroll" our politicians?
Why is General Petraeus unaware that someone is making recordings of his conversations, in his office?? The guy who was most recently- the head of the CIA?
Oh, this one is going to be fun. Take a look! My guess is- they'll keep it wrapped up a little while; but not forever. It's just way too much stinky fish.
Update; Feb. 20, 2013. Wow. I guess even week old stinky fish can be wrapped up so tight it won't smell. This story; as of now, has disappeared completely. If you didn't pick up on it within that 3 day window- you're out of luck. Right now; all the links still work. Send them around so they can't totally disappear. And learn- yes; your news is controlled.
