Wanted: Optimistic Writers

From this morning’s Los Angeles Times:

    U.S. Military Covertly Pays to Run Stories in Iraqi Press

Huh. That’s funny: I could have sworn that I hadn’t seen a job listing for “information operations” troops on MediaBistro’s job board.

Oh well.

So, if you’re interesting in writing articles that “are basically factual” but “present only one side of events and omit information that might reflect poorly on the U.S. or Iraqi governments,” the U.S. government might be interested in your resume.

(Somewhere, Armstrong Williams feels like he was just let off the hook)
