Margo Kingston exposes News Limited propaganda
Daily Telegraph story alleged human remains discoverned near Basra were victims of 'Saddam's torture', however the truth is that they are apparently recovered remains from the Iran-Iraq war as part of an exchange program with Iran. One of the more blatant and extreme propaganda exercises of this war.

'Rupert Murdoch's vast newspaper empire has waged a relentless pro-war propaganda war before and since the war began without even the pretence, in many cases, that even the facade of journalism - a genuine attempt to get the facts in the time available and to present what is known at the time of going to press, appropriately attributed - is being preserved. It just so happens that Murdoch wants US government approval to take over DirecTV and further extend his grip on pay TV.'
