Retired General Barry McCaffrey sits on the board of a giant defense contractor, DynCorp, and lobbies for war.

And many other “pundits” interviewed by the mainstream news are really high-level lobbyists for giant companies, pushing their agendas.

And yet they are treated as “independent experts” by the media.

Indeed – 2 years after Jones asked the large networks why they don’t have a disclaimer on the screen beneath the pundits’ names saying who they really work for – nothing has been done.

The corporate media are acting like virtual “escort services” for the powerful, selling access – for a price – to viewers and to powerful government officials, instead of actually investigating and reporting on what those in power are actually doing.

And see this.
