WTF? CBS News hired Mick Mulvaney, a former Trump Admin official, as a paid contributor.

https://heathercoxrichardson.substack.com/p/march-30-2022?s=r

Letters from an American: Heather Cox Richardson

"As director of OMB, Mulvaney okayed the withholding of almost $400 million Congress had appropriated for Ukraine’s protection against Russia. In May 2019, he set up “the three amigos,” Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, special envoy Kurt Volker, and Energy Secretary Rick Perry, to pressure Zelensky.

...the Washington Post tonight revealed that he had reviewed a recording of a phone call in which the co-president of CBS News, Neeraj Khemlani, suggested they had hired Mulvaney to guarantee access to Republican lawmakers. “If you look at some of the people that we’ve been hiring on a contributor basis, being able to make sure that we are getting access to both sides of the aisle is a priority because we know the Republicans are going to take over, most likely, in the midterms,” Khemlani told staff."

1. Call CBS to file a complaint at (212) 975-4321.

An operator will answer. Tell him/her that you want the complaint department. You will be connected to a line where you can leave a recorded message.

2. Found video where Mulvaney makes his first appearance. He's not too bad, even says ridh manipulate

 

their taxes, and how we deal with that needs to be discussed.

He's definitely goofy looking.
