AP’s Perception Management Exclusive II

Gareth Porter on Pamela Hess’ “propaganda blast in the guise of an intelligence briefing” derived exclusively from a “senior intelligence offer” about Iranian hit-squad training:

Hess’ hit-squad training story should be assigned to journalism classes for the next generation to open a discussion about what went wrong with American journalism before and during America’s overtly imperial war in the Middle East. And Hess should be seen as a stunningly clear illustration of what happens when a reporter gives up any pretense of independence from the national-security state.

Porter’s article does a great job of deconstructing Hess’ piece and reporting on Iran in general.   I also flagged that story when it came out.
