USA Today got Armstrong's contract through FOIA, how did they
know to request it? Does that mean someone at the education dept. tipped off the media? If so, THANK YOU, whoever you are. :hi:

1. Isn't it about time Bush ended the FOIA?
Patriot act III could get rid of this. 2nd term, time to clean up the loose ends.

4. He has already taken care of that as far as his
own records from Texas and his and his father's Presidencies.

2. I meant to post the relevant reference
The contract, detailed in documents obtained by USA TODAY through a Freedom of Information Act request, also shows that the Education Department, through the Ketchum public relations firm, arranged with Williams to use contacts with America's Black Forum, a group of black broadcast journalists, "to encourage the producers to periodically address" NCLB. He persuaded radio and TV personality Steve Harvey to invite Paige onto his show twice. Harvey's manager, Rushion McDonald, confirmed the appearances.

3. what I want to know is why?
these pundits are all so corrupt and crooked, why this one at this particular time. What did he do to USA today?

If "there are others" why did they go after Williams? It doesn't make any sense whatsoever, does it?
