D.H.S.--The Series? Goebbels would be proud. This is a television series being propsed that is a drama based on the Department of Homeland Security, the good folks who brought us Code Orange and the silly color-coded terra-threat chart. The show would "explore the inner workings of the Department of Homeland Security, teaming the FBI, CIA, Secret Service, and National Security Administration (NSA) together with "first responders" such as local police, fire and safety administrators." It has also received the blessing of Dubya and Tommy "Be Afraid But Act Normal" Ridge, who have both endorsed the show and contributed sound-bytes (unclear if these sound-bytes are new or just taken from newsreel).
The article also says, "It is virtually unprecedented for the White House to endorse such a fictional representation." Not exactly true. This White House has endorsed all sorts of fictional representations including claims about WMD in Iraq, claims about their tax cuts and job creation, budget deficit projections, the idea of Shrub being a "compassionate conservative," Shrub's service in the TANG, claims about their cooperation with the 9/11 panel, destructive environmental policy, and the list goes on and on and on. Yay propaganda!
