Out of the Woodwork

Oops! Another paid government propagandist is uncovered today in the Washington Post.

In 2002, syndicated columnist Maggie Gallagher repeatedly defended President Bush's push for a $300 million initiative encouraging marriage as a way of strengthening families.

But Gallagher failed to mention that she had a $21,500 contract with the Department of Health and Human Services to help promote the president's proposal.

"Did I violate journalistic ethics by not disclosing it?" Gallagher said yesterday. "I don't know. You tell me."

Yes, Mags. You did indeed violate journalistic ethics. Did you violate your own ethics? I doubt it.
