If your country is going to the dogs,blame the Western media

A great story in the Guardian this morning.

Apparently Spain's intellegence services are investigating the role of British and American media in fomenting financial turmoil.

The country has been in the media spotlight along with Portugal and Greece in the last couple of weeks

Its largest daily El Pais has said

the country's National Intelligence Centre (CNI) was investigating a series of "speculative attacks" against the Spanish economy amid bond market jitters about the country's growing national debt.
"The (CNI's) economic intelligence division … is investigating whether investors' attacks and the aggressiveness of some Anglo-Saxon media are driven by market forces and challenges facing the Spanish economy – or whether there is something more behind this campaign,"
