No Pundit Left BehindBy Emelius at 7:51 PM
Armstrong Williams has started a mudslide of problems for himself and the White House in accepting money in exchange for promoting the republican agenda on the airwaves without disclosing that he was paid to do so. Today, the FCC has released a statement saying that they will investigate if Williams did anything that violated the law and rules of the FCC.
A member of the Federal Communications Commission said Thursday the agency should investigate whether conservative commentator Armstrong Williams broke the law by failing to disclose that the Bush administration paid him $240,000 to plug its education policies.
Anyone can send in letters to complain that someone may have violated a FCC regulation. Hmmmm, sounds like a good idea to me.
Adding salt to the wounds, Senate leaders have asked the Department of Education to turn over records to flush out if there is a history of sponsoring propaganda.
