None Dare Call it Conditioning
Did you know that Afghan president Hamid Karzai addressed a joint session of Congress
this past Tuesday? I didn't before I saw this Bob Kohn commentary
. Like Kohn reading the New York Times, I was reading Wednesday's Atlanta Journal-Constitution and only saw some mention of the press conference Karzai held with Bush. I had no idea a joint session of Congress had been held at all.
Once there was a time when the free press existed to counter attempts by government to dictate truth; now government can't count on the press to report its own good news in any area.
