What the Newsweak Apology Means

Newsweak is worried enough about the consequences of opposing the Bush/corporate takeover of the media to be willing to emasculate their reporters. As Greg Palast asks:

Newsweek has now publicly committed to having its reports vetted by Rumsfeld's Defense Department before publication. Why not just print Rumsfeld's press releases and eliminate the middleman, the reporter?

Perhaps the citizens of the US will have to resort to listening to illegal shortwave radio (and read foreign news reports as long as the internets are still uncensored) in order to get real news now that "the Party" has succeeded in getting the "MSM" media to kowtow to the official message.

Shortwave radio kits, get 'em while they're legal.
