Putin Believes the Hype

This is the scariest story I have read regarding the "rest of the world" in a very long time.

If the press was so free in the U.S., Putin asked, then why had those reporters at CBS lost their jobs? Bush was openmouthed. "Putin thought we'd fired Dan Rather," says a senior Administration official. "It was like something out of 1984."

It is one thing to assume that joe public in outher countries is duped by the Farenheit 9/11 types and all the other fables and lies that come out of our media. It is another matter when foreign leaders believe the same hype. Our government needs to seriously fight back against the perpetrators of this slime to prevent obvious lies from becoming fact (see my post below on Agent Orange).
