Another Right Wing Propagandist Uncovered

Anyone who thinks the Armstrong Williams Payola incident was isolated had better take another sip of that Kool-Aid or read on. The Washington Post is reporting today that syndicated columnist Maggie Gallagher was paid $21,500 by the Department of Health and Human Services to pimp a $300 million marriage initiative for the administration. When asked whether this violated journalistic ethics Gallager said,

“Did I violate journalistic ethics by not disclosing it?” Gallagher said yesterday. “I don’t know. You tell me.” She said she would have “been happy to tell anyone who called me” about the contract but that “frankly, it never occurred to me” to disclose it.

Ok Maggie, I will tell you…YES.

Hat tip to Oliver.
