The US defence department has set up a new unit to better promote its message across 24-hour rolling news outlets, and particularly on the internet.


"Promote its message", eh? Maybe I've read V for Vendetta one too many times, but I'm unhappy and a bit frightened that the government has laid out this groundwork. The task of differentiating fake and real news has always been left to the people (and, one would argue, some people prefer their news sensationalized. We hope the system keeps such people from getting into positions of power...)
