Pelosi: President Urged to Order Full Disclosure of Covert Propaganda
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 06:22 PM by thecorrection
WASHINGTON, Jan. 28 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Today, the House Democratic leadership and Ranking Democratic Members sent a letter to President Bush (news - web sites) asking him to direct the release of all contracts for secret publicity campaigns to promote Administration policies.

The text of the letter follows.

January 28, 2005

The President

The White House

Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President:

We are writing to request that you direct each department and agency of the Executive Branch to disclose to the appropriate Committee of the House of Representatives all public relations and advertising contracts signed during your Administration.

Over the past year, multiple investigations have revealed that federal agencies have employed secret publicity campaigns to promote administration priorities.

In separate analyses, the Government Accountability Office found that the Department of Health and Human Services (news - web sites) and the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy violated the congressional prohibition on publicity and propaganda by distributing fabricated video news reports.(1)

I rated it about 10 minutes ago. I followed your link here again, and was able to rate it again, and it told me I was the first.

Hmmm....

5. No teeth in this request
The pukes have the courts, and all three branches of government. On top of that they own the press. Just how do we get bush to do anything but laugh. Face it, we are on the outside looking in. The bushies can and will do nothing with this request. That is the cold hard facts. Anyone see anyway around it?
