Army to begin officially astroturfing blogs

From William M. Arkin - washingtonpost.com via da Poorman:


Word comes from RL that the Army has hired PR firm Hass MS&L of Detroit to offer "exclusive editorial content" to blogs willing to run government propaganda.

"The Army believes that military blogs are a valuable medium for reaching out," account executive Charlie Kondek has written to a number of pro-military blogs in a January 6 Email.

"To that end, the Army plans to offer you and selected bloggers exclusive editorial content on a few issues you’re likely to be interested in," Kondek says. The Email has been mentioned in Black Five, One Hand Clapping and Fuzzilicious Thinking.
I guess we now know where the folks who until recently were propagandizing in Iraq all ended up.

Are they calling the operation Pajamas Media?

Good to see that Armstrong WIlliams has landed on his feet.

Thank you, thank you very much. I'll be here all week.

They are pretty slow to get on the boat. The Bush administration has had a similar deal with the em ess em for 5 years now.....
