Wag the dog?. The alleged truth about how Private Jessica Lynch was saved.
This is a pretty amazing story, coming originally from the BBC and now a front page story on the Guardian. There's a program on it on BBC on Sunday.

oh yes, this is nothing new, the social construction of facts and their provision to a certain audience for certain effects, which in this case actually seemed to work, i wonder how far this story will be distributed though?
