Our tax dollars at work - 1.6 billion on fake news

Maybe if they planned things out, hired compentent employees instead of cronies and just stopped lying - they wouldn't need to spend so much of our money on public relations. I wonder how many Armstrong Williams and Jeff Gannons are in the mix??

From the WP:

How much is good press worth? To the Bush administration, about $1.6 billion.

That's how much seven federal departments spent from 2003 through the second quarter of 2005 on 343 contracts with public relations firms, advertising agencies, media organizations and individuals, according to a new Government Accountability Office report.
