Now Cut Away 

Sorry to post so close on the heels of the last one, but I just saw this and had to put it up. This is a video of a corporate media broadcast (TBO.com, owned by Media-General) of FCC hearings on media ownership. The speaker, critical of corporate dominance of media, gets cut midway through his testimony on to a reporter who is clearly not expecting the cut.

Around minute four you can observe an exquisitely blatant example of what happens every day at thousands of corporate editor's desks across the country:

Behold the propaganda machine in all its hamfisted glory.
