Over a five-day span, ending last Thursday, TV and radio stations and print publications from around the country featured at least 290 stories either about a controversial junket he [Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Texas)] took to Scotland in 2000, his response to criticism about the propriety of that trip or his offer to discuss the matter with the House ethics committee, according to a survey. The articles by The Associated Press, Reuters, Knight Ridder and The Washington Post were picked up by news outlets around the country.
The press “reporting” glut appears to be connected to funding from George Soros, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, and Democracy 21.
What will the CFR lobby do about this? Ooops, forgot, this is the CFR lobby.
