Baathist infiltrates Fox?

I don’t know how reliable a reporter Suzanne Goldenberg of The Guardian is– she seems to wear her biases on her sleeve– but this item about everyone’s favorite Fair and Balanced (TM) network is amusing if true:

Almost all of the bureaucrats at the information ministry [in Baghdad] have done very nicely for themselves since the war. The government minders who spent their days reporting to the intelligence services on foreign reporters or doing their best to obstruct their work have gone on to well-paid jobs – for the same foreign news organisations they once hounded.

The second-in-command at the information ministry, who spent his days reading the reports the minders wrote about visiting foreign journalists, has been employed by Fox News.
