One Propagandist Finds Kinship in Another.

Says Roger L. Simon:

As the MSM continues to report on the huffing and puffing of various Eurocrats about the use of stolen or semi-stolen (who really knows?) passports in the murder of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai in January, you have to look around the edges for the real story. And one of those places today is the Chinese news agency Xinhua.

Ah, yes. Surely anyone looking for the real story will avail himself of an outlet whose "journalists are hand-picked and indoctrinated to produce media reports that give the official point of view of the Chinese Communist Party."

If you find Simon's use of Xinhua unsurprising, well, that's because it is. Scholars of the $3.5 million money pit will recall that Putz's Folly embarrassed itself early on by cluelessly aggregating Xinhua stories.

Perhaps another blogjam is in order?
