More on Education Dept. Propaganda

Last month the Department of Education essentially exonerated itself of wrongdoing in producing fake news stories and covertly paying journalists to promote administration policies. (See: Does Covert Government Information = Propaganda?) Now, the Government Accountability Office says that payments to broadcast commentator Armstrong Williams to promote its “No Child Left Behind” policy were illegal, and that the payments violated prohibitions on funding “covert propaganda.” It also denounced a prepackaged television story disseminated by the Education Department.
