Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


A third columnist was reportedly paid by the Bush Administration to push its message in the media. Columnist Michael McManus failed to disclose that he was paid $10,000 to carry water for Bush and his marriage initative in his writings. McManus' column is ironically titled "Ethics and Religion."

Earlier this week, columnist Maggie Gallagher fessed up to taking $21,500 from the Department of Health and Human Services to do the same.

These two revelations come on the heels of columnist Armstrong Williams admitting the Department of Education paid him $240,000 to promote the president's No Child Left Behind Act.

How many more of members of the media have been paid off by the government with tax dollars to propagandize?
