Welcome To The Right Wing Noise Machine

Funny what you'll find when you trace the source.

We start with this today:
There they go again: The State Department is, for lack of a better word, Obamaizing its online profiles of foreign countries. That is, State is promoting Barack the Supposedly Great’s foreign policy “achievements” (our quotation marks, not the administration’s), Fox New (sic) reports. What’s next to be bastardized, the Constitution? (Some would argue that’s already happened.)
This leads us back to the Fox News report:
The State Department has started to replace its just-the-facts online profiles of foreign countries with new ones that appear to largely highlight U.S. relations since President Obama took office -- a move that comes on top of efforts to update the official profiles of past presidents with Obama-themed factoids.

The agency has so far swapped just a fraction of the nearly 200 country profiles. The new versions are hardly sensational in their promotion of Obama administration policy objectives, but do appear to put more of an emphasis on them. Several now highlight Obama initiatives like pursuing "strategic" talks with China and South Africa, and ending discrimination against transgendered individuals in Brazil.

The changes were discovered by the Heritage Foundation's Jim Roberts. Roberts likened the changes to the move by the White House to tack on Obama accomplishments at the end of the online bios of past presidents, which drew ridicule earlier this year.
Ah, yes...our good friends at the Scaife funded Heritage Foundation.

You wanna know where else the story's landed?

The Scaife owned NewsMax.

Isn't it great for Amurika when one man can use his God-given billions to steer the news?
