GAO Rules White House Engaged in Propaganda

The bad news for the Bush administration and the GOP generally just keeps on coming. The question will soon be who in that party is not guilty of something illegal?

Federal auditors said on Friday that the Bush administration violated the law by buying favorable news coverage of President Bush's education policies, by making payments to the conservative commentator Armstrong Williams and by hiring a public relations company to analyze media perceptions of the Republican Party.

In a blistering report, the investigators, from the Government Accountability Office, said the administration had disseminated "covert propaganda" in the United States, in violation of a statutory ban.
