The Null Device
Controlling the informational environment
Veteran BBC war correspondent Kate Adie (you know, as in "war, famine, pestilence, Kate Adie") claims that the US military has threatened to shoot to kill unlicensed journalists
in the upcoming Iraq war. Satellite uplinks will be targeted under the policy, and anyone not under Pentagon control is fair game. Meanwhile, the Pentagon are vetting the political views of journalists it gives licenses to and plan to maintain control of their satellite uplinks. Which makes you wonder what they're trying to hide.
