The world's largest disinformation company, television giant CNN, teamed up Friday with the Burmese crony-owned telecommunications company SkyNet, less than a month after the firm was implicated in a government bribery scandal. It is hoped that the partnership will form a private sector backbone for Burma's new Ministry of Truth. A spokesman told us that they will launch a 24-hour Burmese-language news network called Channel One and that the “R” word will be forbidden on the new channel. The “R” word has be used to denote an non-existent ethnic Muslim minority that do not live in the East of the country.
