UPDATE: Austin Bay says it’s not just satire: “The thing is, when CNN gripes about the Pentagon using them, it’s a pretty hollow gripe. . . . Didn’t CNN dupe us, after a fashion? As I recall, Saddam let CNN keep its Baghdad bureau open in exchange for ‘suppressing’ or ‘sugar-coating’ stories that would have exposed the depravity and evil of his regime. Didn’t a CNN executive admit this (though not so bluntly) in a NY Times op-ed?”

Yes. That was Eason Jordan, and CNN — along with the rest of the institutional press — would much prefer that you forgot about it.
