Um, Isn't this Illegal?

It has come to light that the U.S. is paying for good press. According to an article, the government is planting stories in the Iraqi press that make the U.S. intervention in Iraq look positive to Muslims who aren't convinced.

Actually, the answer to the question in my title is that it is illegal in the U.S., but we're not talking about a U.S. based action. The current administration keeps portraying itself as a global arbiter of morality, but only talks a good game (and not that well, actually). And if you question the correctness of such an action, you're a heretic, unpatriotic, or worse, a terrorist.

When are we gonna stop drinkin' the kool-aid?

Freedom of the press, my pastey white ass! Gotta love a capitalist society, where anything and everything can be bought--even good PR. All it is is damage control, plain and simple. I keep looking in the classifieds for the position of "Benevolent Dictator" to open up. I'd love to take a crack at that job.
