Pentagon sites: Journalism or propaganda? (CNN):

“The Defense Department runs two Web sites overseas, one aimed at people in the Balkan region in Europe, the other for the Maghreb area of North Africa. It is preparing another site, even as the Pentagon inspector general investigates whether the sites are appropriate. The Web sites carry stories on subjects such as politics, sports and entertainment.
The sites are run by U.S. military troops trained in ‘information warfare,’ a specialty than can include battlefield deception. Pentagon officials say the goal is to counter ‘misinformation’ about the United States in overseas media.”

3 Mal darf man raten, ob es sich dabei nun eher um Journalismus oder Propaganda handelt. In einer Zwischenüberschrift gibt CNN die Antwort aber gleich selbst: Information warfare, und führt das Ganze noch weiter aus.
