USA Today Smear Campaign Blackout
Think about how much air time the GSA scandal has received, which involves little more than 800 thousand dollars, against an issue such as members of Congress thinking that the main supplier of food to the troops in Afghanistan may have overbilled the military by more than 750 million dollars. Alyona will tell you about a smear campaign launched against two journalists at USA Today. It’s a perfect example of the toxic environment that real journalists work in these days, where insulting or exposing government favored industries for their corruption often brings retaliation. It’s an attack on the freedom of the press, the freedom of speech and it’s a scandal!
