Mark Bowden, Atlantic, Shilling for the F-22

CREDIT:

Matt Duss has the goods on the free advertising for the F-22 that Mark Bowden and The Atlantic decided to offer in this month’s issue. It’s worth noting that this is hardly the first time the editorial content of that magazine has been strikingly friendly to the aspirations of the military-industrial complex. On Valentine’s Day who could forget Robert Kaplan’s mash note to the B-2 or his June 2005 ode to the U.S. Navy’s aspirations for a war with China. I believe this is the sort of dogged reporting that gets you access.
