I really hadn't intended to write any more about Imus, but then I saw a pointer to a Pravda story on Doc's blog. You'll remember that Pravda was the feared organ of state propaganda under the Soviets. Now, it appears (by the links that surround the story) that it's becoming Russia's version of Weekly World News.
But, to the US War Leaders, Don Imus represented the most serious threat, to date, of the growing assault against them by America's media personalities threatening to expose the truths behind the events of September 11, 2001 and the Iraq/Afghanistan Wars; and to such an extent that another American media personality, Rosie O'Donnell, has expressed concern that US Military Leaders could actually imprison Mr. Imus.
From our past research of the tactics used against those threatening America's War Leaders, the likelihood of imprisonment for Don Imus would only occur should he persist in his threats to undermine their authority, and which appears, at this time, unlikely after the public disgrace he has had to endure.From Pravda.Ru

I guess as I think about it, Pravda and Weekly World News were always pretty similar in their technique. Only their goals were different.
