8. Let me tell you about Scholastic - I know I worked for them
I would post this in a stand alone thread, but my post count is not high enough to start threads. Among many things (treating workers very badly, low low low wages for all except managers, using mostly temp and most likely illegal immigrants, to keep wages low, I am talking about the warehouse here) they publish and push on our kids the most red, conservative bs masquerading as history. This is the not the first time they have slandered Clinton. Just a few examples.....

In the book fair division, Separate biographies are published for all Repub presidents, including Reagan and Bush, geared towards the youngest of readers. They are displayed prominently at the bookfairs and at the warehouse sales. No such biographies are published for any Democrat president.

They have several other books regarding presidents, some for younger and some for older (chapter) books. All of the books I examined talked of the "Clinton scandals", as in "the Clinton presidency was marred by scandals" and other very negative phrases. Reagen , on the other hand is treated like he is a god, no mention of scandals in anything written by him. No mention of contras, or anything else in the most scandal ridden presidency of our times.

I no longer work at Scholastic, otherwise i could walk up and down the isles of the warehouse picking out the subtle propaganda, all things (snarl sneer) Dem's bad, all things repub good.
