<nettime> Embedded journalism needs WikiLeaks to wash its dirty face

The linked and illustrated version can be found at


WikiLeaks Afghanistan are result & product of embedded journalism. Embedded journalism is an euphemism for ‘state propaganda’, so in cases of warrior states it is about the role of media as ‘state propaganda’, as ‘war propaganda instruments’. Who benefits? is the ultimate question and time will answer that. Though we may speculate… Withdrawal needs its path to be prepared… and news media need to wash their face after a dirty operation …. So this leak may serve two purposes: withdrawal from war and a media face wash.
