I understand that the propaganda line being put forth by almost all media sources is that some agents lost track of some guns, and that is the whole problem with Fast and Furious. If you misidentify the problem, getting to the wrong solution becomes easier.
Its fashionable to complain about the news media. i don't see any so called "propaganda". CBS has been on the case since early on:

WASHINGTON - Keeping American weapons from getting into the hands of Mexican gangs is the goal of a program called "Project Gunrunner." But critics say it's doing exactly the opposite. CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports on what she found.

December 14, 2010. The place: a dangerous smuggling route in Arizona not far from the border. A special tactical border squad was on patrol when gunfire broke out and agent Brian Terry was killed.

Kent, Brian's brother, said "he was my only brother. That was the only brother I had. I'm lost".

The assault rifles found at the murder were traced back to a U.S. gun shop. Where they came from and how they got there is a scandal so large, some insiders say it surpasses the shoot-out at Ruby Ridge and the deadly siege at Waco.


Not all the F&F guns went to Mexico. Never saw this one reported by any other news organization:

PHOENIX - Weapons linked to a questionable government strategy are turning up in crimes in Valley neighborhoods.

For months the ABC15 Investigators have been searching through police reports and official government documents. We’ve discovered assault weapons linked to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ controversial "Fast and Furious" case strategy have turned up at crime scenes in Glendale and Phoenix communities.

CBS won the Edward R. Murrow award for investigative journalism:

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa today issued the following statement on CBS winning the Radio Television Digital News Association's Edward R. Murrow Award for Investigative Reporting on Operation Fast and Furious:

"First on the story, CBS and investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson tenaciously fought to bring Americans answers on Operation Fast and Furious," Issa said. "In looking into the heartbreaking death of Agent Brian Terry, they've remained committed to following the facts. It's encouraging to see CBS awarded for their important investigative reporting."
