In a blistering report, the investigators, from the Government Accountability Office, said the administration had disseminated 'covert propaganda' in the United States, in violation of a statutory ban.

I find it hard to believe any liberal media outlet would be willing to "sell out" their leftist point of view for a buck.They hate the President and usually do anything to undermine him.Every previous President has hired P.R firms to sell their policies to the public.This is nothing "new"."Covert Propaganda" is a Liberal buzzword for Politics they don't agree with.
