What You Don't Know Can't Hurt Them
Our hardworking buddies at TPM Muckraker have compiled a fun list of the Bush Administration's top Stalinist memory-hole operations. Here are a few:
* After a U.S. government report showed an increase in global terrorism, the White House stopped publishing the yearly global-terrorism report.
* When federal labor statistics showed a lot of U.S. factories closing down, the White House stopped publishing the labor statistics.
* When U.S. poverty went up, the White House canceled the Census Bureau's "Survey of Income and Program Participation."
