♪ Baaack in the DDR ♪

Looking more like “Der Schwarze Kanal”(a unintentionally funny propaganda TV program by the former East German television company which was aimed at the west) every day, Spiegel gins up THIS item: “Bush's Perfect Propaganda Machine”. Thanks to David and Ray for the clue-in.

Never mind the fact that
DW-TV is a kind of propaganda mechanism – sending any television station any sort of pap promoting tourism, flattering automobile review, or historical whitewash that they want. One item that they trotted around a few years back, even looked to promote the pristine, bucolic virtues of one of the towns where a concentration camp was located (being careful to skip that little bit of geschischte.)
