First We Kill the Media

soldier.jpg Alex at Wonkette writes today about web sites that are being blocked by military computers in Iraq, as opposed to those that are deemed "acceptable":

Wonkette – blocked
O’Reilly — OK
Air America — blocked
Limbaugh — OK
ABC News "The Note" — OK
Al Franken Show — blocked
G. Gordon Liddy Show — OK

And despite this 72% of US troops want out of Iraq within the year. You have to wonder what those numbers would look like if they weren’t being blocked from alternative news sources.

Update: I’ll be on the Young Turks radio show tonight at 5:05pm discussing Russert Watch.
