Freedom Of The Press
More from the Iraq Weekly Status Report, this time from the section titled "Strengthen Public Understanding of Coalition Efforts and Public Isolation of the Insurgents":
The Independent Radio and Television Station, formerly operated under Saddam Hussein and then under the Iraqi Media Network, reopened in Diyala province March 25. Funding for the station comes from advertising revenue bought by the U.S. 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division in Diyala to send out Coalition messages. (Emphasis added.)
Who's vetting this stuff, Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf?
