The Army has been positioning soldiers at television broadcasting stations to enhance their training in psychological operations. When the military industrial complex collaborates with private business, especially that of mass communications, one can only imagine what the true goal might be.
The relationship between psyops training with industry and news operations has stirred controversy in the past. In 2000, after a Dutch newspaper reported that pscy-ops troops had been placed at CNN’s news room under the program, CNN discontinued the internships and admitted that they had made a mistake. A spokesperson said at the time quote “It was inappropriate for PSYOPS personnel to be at CNN. They are not here now and they never again will be at CNN”.
