Another Journalist on the White House Payroll

I appears as though yet another journalist was on the White House Payroll. Syndicated columnist Maggie Gallagher was paid $21,500 by the Department of Health and Human Service to promote Bush's tax cuts. The Washington Post will run a story on it in their morning edition.

What happened to freedom of the press? Given the press's involvement in the lead-up to the Iraq War, the help in getting Bush re-elected and their pathetic coverage of his regime, how can we not think that dozens of other reporters were on the payroll? How can we ever trust anything they tell us again?

Blogs are the only source of truth left to the public. If only they knew it...
