Propagandists Beware: The Case Of Armstrong Williams

Anyone considering a career in buying, selling or renting propaganda really should take a look at the Government Accountability Office reports on how the Department of Education bought commentary from pundit (sort of) Armstrong Williams and peddled phony news stories. GAO basically found these stunts were illegal ploys to distribute "covert propaganda."

William Bennett's inane and hurtful gaffe and Judith Miller's saga may be getting all the press, but I think this is a more important story.
