Bush Buying Off Opinion Makers

The Bush Administration reportedly paid nearly a quarter of a million dollars to Armstrong Williams, a prominent black commentator, to promote the government's so-called "No Child Left Behind" law. At least three Senators are asking for the money back. Mr. Williams says, now that he has the money, that he wouldn't do it again. In 2003, the Administration had reportedly spent $700,000 to produce fake news stories to promote the legislation.
