Bush Indoctrination

Speaking of western indoctrination, the Bush administration, according to a new Government Accountability Office report, spent $1.6 billion between 2003 and 2005 making sure American citizens, and even more importantly, the segment of the population who pays the closest attention to the news media, were sufficiently inculcated with the Bush agenda.

$1.6 billion dollars was the amount paid to public relations firms, advertising agencies, media organizations and individuals to keep Americans brainwashed and out of their way.

"The new report reveals that federal public relations spending goes far beyond "video news releases." The contracts covered the waterfront, from a $6.3 million agreement to help the Department of Homeland Security educate Americans about how to respond to terrorist attacks; to a $647,350 contract to assist the Transportation Security Administration in producing video news releases and media tours on the subject of airport security procedures; to a $6,600 contract to train managers at the Bureau of Reclamation in dealing with the media."
