US media does Tokyo Rose

June 29, 2007: U.S. troops have been mystified at how differently the war they fight in Iraq is portrayed by the U.S. media back home. Most just shrug it off as "politics," and yet another reason to not trust what the mass media presents as reliable reporting. But recently, the troops have been passing around an interesting discovery. Namely, that the Japanese psychological warfare effort during World War II included radio broadcasts that could be picked up by American troops. Popular music was played, but the commentary (by one of several English speaking Japanese women) always hammered away on the same points;

1 Your President (Franklin D Roosevelt) is lying to you.

2 This war is illegal.

3 You cannot win the war.

The troops are perplexed and somewhat amused that their own media is now sending out this message....

The media is largely picking up the meme of the left wing Democrats which in turn is picked up by al Qaeda propaganda. They should be shamed by this, but the instead ignore their contribution to the enemy war efforts. the enemy says that half the war is in the media battle space and they have many useful idiots in that battle space.
