information management, republican style

Two examples of the manipulation of information by the Republicans and the de facto Bush Administration.

First, Lt Colonel William Hall died in Iraq recently. He was buried yesterday in Arlington National Cemetary. Lt Colonel Hall's family wanted the media to be present. The military did not exactly agree - they kept the media well away from the site of the service and whisked them off before it was concluded. Manipulating information by denying the press the chance to obtain it.

Second, over to the Environmental Protection Agency. Over half of EPA scientists in a private survey said they "had witnessed political interference in scientific decisions at the agency during the past five years." Manipulating information by suppressing and changing scientific judgments for political reasons.

This is Republican America. Remember that, when you consider voting for that square-jawed war hero John McCain. He is one of them.
