Funny, just yesterday Steenblogen and I were talking about how Microsoft probably prices their consoles as loss-leaders and recoups the money on games, given how cheap platforms are and how pricey the games are -- and it seems we were correct.

Meanwhile, the body count in Iraq and the astronomical price tag are both revealed to be loss-leaders as well: the real money's in newspapers, apparently.

The LA Times broke an elaborate plot orchestarted by the US military to seed Iraqi papers with pro-US articles and editorials. Doesn't heavy-handed propaganda kinda undermine their stated mission to bring democracy to the region? The LA Times ain't free, so read the Toronto Star's version here.
