belt way boys say they were not paid off
by the bush administration. i sent out emails to a lot of media mouths asking them how much has the bush adminstration paid you with the tax payers dollar.

i received my first email back

I can say unequivocably that Fred and Mort are both independent journalists who have not taken a single dime from the administration or any tax payer. They were outraged at Armstrong's admission.

Thanks for writing and watching...

Sincerely,

Michele
Producer, The Beltway Boys

4. Notice what it says
and doesn't say. It doesn't say they haven't taken money from a PR firm to shill for the administration.

5. Right. They were "outraged " at the ADMISSION--
but perhaps not at the actual deed?

But not outraged at the action, at the bribery.

7. I really hate Fren Barnes and Mort is just as bad, almost worse
because he's not as up front about it.

11. If they aren't getting paid....
I bet they're PISSED.
Those two do more partisan cheerleading than...uhhh More than...
I can't think of anyone who does more.

I saw their New Year's review show...Good thing=Buxh. Bad thing=Kerry. I watched the whole thing, they didn't stray.
It was ridiculous.
