So according to an article on the front page of today's NYT, the conservative pundit Armstrong Williams received $240K from the Dept. of Education to promote the No Child Left Behind Act on his show. That many segments of the media have graciously served as the Bush administration's propaganda arm is nothing new or revelatory. But now tax dollars have been used to fund the dubious and somewhat undemocratic practice. Instead of enriching one of its lapdogs, perhaps the Department could have found a better use for the money, such as, say, properly funding the very act that it's trying to champion.
