A campaign to discredit pro-US writers and analysts? It sure looks that way:

The theme here, if you haven't already picked up on it, is that two major papers have used recent news reports about U.S. military information operations to try to discredit a pro-U.S. analyst and a pro-U.S. blogger. Both Rubin and Roggio write from a standpoint that is generally supportive of the U.S. mission in Iraq, and the NY Times and the Washington Post have attempted to portray their writings as untrustworthy and potentially motivated by financial considerations.

Of course, the Washington Post and the NY Times are definitely not motivated by financial considerations, are they?

Nor are they motivated by ideology--they are pure and ideology-free as the driven snow.
