Most news outlets, such as The Associated Press and the BBC, are reporting that the Pentagon throwing a hissy fit over publication of photos of flag-draped coffins returning from Iraq at Dover Air Force Base.

The real outrage here is how the government is getting away with censoring the media, and how the media plays along. We would have never seen these images if not for The Memory Hole (whose servers appears to be overloaded at the moment).

Fox News Channel -- an oxymoron, if I ever heard one -- was easily the guiltiest party.

The New York Times writes:

Among the national television news organizations, only the Fox News Channel had no plans to use any of the photos or explore the issue of why they had been barred from use in the news media, a channel spokesman said.

Do we live in the U.S. or North Korea?
