    Run Google News for TSA -- they're now flooding the news media with "Loaded Gun in Airport ..." press releases. Never mind that the technology used on 9/11/01 was better suited for finding weapons (no 43% misses, 54% false positives). Of the top 30 matches, these are the ones that are TSA related:
    This takes us back to Feb. 14, almost 5 days ago. Over 50% of the hits are related to guns & knives found at checkpoints.

    Didn't they recently send Kirsten packing and brink in a new PR hack? Is this the best the new hack can do?

    Likewise, the TSA blog has deteriorated to weekly weapons counts. The propaganda has largly ceased, but so has any semblance of useful information.
    Fisher1949 and Elizabeth Conley like this.

    When no one trusts or believes anything coming out of TSA all they have left is this kind of effort. Blogdad Bob lost all credibility a long time ago. He and the blog are no longer revelant.

    I wasn't aware that Boggy Boob ever had any credibility. He's a TSA employee - and therefore anything he says or writes should be automatically suspect.

    I had an open mind until he showed the world how dishonest he and TSA really is.

    The scales fell from my eyes when the first TSA employee told me that they were doing this "to prevent another 9/11." It takes an idiot or a liar to say something like that.

    It's all about the metrics. TSA likes to tell Congress that over 50% of "news stories" about TSA are positive, even if they plant the stories.

    I wrote about this awhile back at TSA News. There were several quotes from TSA reps at hearing citing these stats. Sadly, none of the committee members were knowledgeable enough to challenge them.

    Blogdad Bob never had any credibility to lose. We called it "Propaganda Village" from the start.
