Description

The Pentagon contracted a public relations firm to profile embedded journalists reporting on missions in Afghanistan. The profiling program was meant to drive journalists to report positively and deny embed requests from those who tended to report negatively on the conflict. Within six days of public exposure to this information, the Pentagon canceled the contract.
