Today, the ***** has evolved to one ***** causes ***** public to sometimes question who is in charge; the media or the government. At other times, as was the case with the U.S. invasion of Iraq, when ***** term "embedded reporter" was invented; the ***** and the political entity seem completely synchronized in goal ***** ideas that it ***** difficult ***** separate where one or the o*****r begins on an issue, ********** the other ends. ***** ***** ***** we see a vying for power, as was the case in 1998 when the Minnesota state election results brought news to Minnesotans of their new governor, Jesse "the body" Ventura, a former wrestling television star, talk show radio host, and, *****n, Minnesota's new governor (Schultz, David and Lang, Peter, 2000, p. xi).
