Bush 'planted fake news stories on American TV'


By Andrew Buncombe in Washington

Published: 29 May 2006

Federal authorities are actively investigating dozens of American television stations for broadcasting items produced by the Bush administration and major corporations, and passing them off as normal news. Some of the fake news segments talked up success in the war in Iraq, or promoted the companies' products.

Investigators from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are seeking information about stations across the country after a report produced by a campaign group detailed the extraordinary extent of the use of such items.

yo, I appreciate you putting all the NOVA episodes and COSMOS up on Google Video, but aren't you concerned that you may get caught?

those videos ought to be free, I mean they would do more to educate the citizenry than any MTV show would

p.s. do you have an organized list of all the cosmos episodes so I can see which ones appeal particularly to me?

sarab singh - all you need to do is to write "Carl Sagan" in the search bar at the top of the video.google.com page, and click on "search", and hey presto! There you go!
