This kind of lying and deception really ticks me off. I don’t believe for a second that it’s not calculated. They know that with today’s media all that matters is headlines. If you end up being wrong, no one will pay attention to retractions, the original message is what sticks.
So the latest example of this is that the Bush Administration released their yearly report on terrorism on Apr 29 and grossly understated the number of deadly attacks. This made it sound like attacks had decreased, which of course they try to use as proof that the crusade against the middle east – er, sorry, war on terrorism – is actually working. Now it’s over a month later and this finally gets discovered. But it won’t matter. It should, but it won’t. I feel bad for the american public that they don’t care anymore about this kind of stuff, but it will eventually come back to bite them. I just hope the masses wake up sooner rather than later, as it’s obviously more costly the longer it lasts.
