A spokesperson for US and UK main stream media and Secretary Kerry has admitted the quality of information on current and forthcoming wars has been re-configured.
It now has the status of materials falling from the hind quarters of various horses.
For example, it is now known Turkey manipulated release of sarin gas by rebels in Syria last August.
At that time the MSM and Secretary Kerry used the word "indisputable" numerous times to insist on Assad's responsibility for the attack.
For Mr. Kerry, that the deed was done by Mr. Assad led him to assert "we know" repeatedly.
He also asserted "This is what Assad did to his own people." Mr. Kerry's pronouncements were frequent, solemn, and noble.
Also at that time Mr. Obama's "red line" for Mr. Assad was nearly crossed.
Then it wavered back to a yellow line and a deal with Mr. Putin and Assad to eliminate Syria's chemical weapons. That plan is now being carried out.
For another example, recently in Ukraine Russia's "invasion" of Crimea was the result of an invasion by Victoria Nuland and Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt.
They set out to install a government headed by Arseniy "Yats" Yatsenyuk favorable to NATO and the West.
Their activities with protesters and sundry right-wing parties led on to the temporary installation of the "Yats" government, which then stirred rebellion by trying to pass new language laws eliminating Russian as an official language for the region.
The MSM was quick to blast Russia as offender whereas Russia claimed to be defender.
Further, a democractic election in Crimea was pitched as "seizing" and "invading" instead of allowing the Crimean people to decide--which they did.
These boatloads of warm, moist horse ordure continue to arrive at FOX news, MSNBC, CNN, etc. They steam in the sun coming into port to anchor at various news desks.
Accordingly, a news award system is developing called "the horse manure accolades."
The most outstanding examples of misleading news and downright distortions will be granted "horse manure status" (or HMS).
The HMS also stands for His or Her Master's Service with additional honors abbreviated to TDN ("trickle down nonsense").
The White House has not yet responded to a request that it monitor and dispense these awards.
Mr. Carney has muttered "We have no comment at this time" more than once, and kept a tight-lipped look about him.
