The Power of Propaganda!

Here I am complaining about Fox News acting as the press secretary for the Bush Administration, and then I come across this article from the Khaleej Times in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The article, located at the bottom of the web page is about pest control and claims the following about bedbugs:

Bed bugs are major transmitters of diseases including HIV and hepatitis so all
precautions should be taken to use good quality of spray.


Now that's scary.

Hi, I'm not much of a blogger, but I'm wondering if you could help me. I'm a freelance writer currently working on an article about bedbugs for a childrens magazine. I love your blog site, and am hoping you migh be interested in answering a few questions for me.

Thanks!
