Ruling Says White House's Medicare Videos Were Illegal

By ROBERT PEAR

Published: May 20, 2004WASHINGTON, May 19 - The General Accounting Office, an investigative arm of Congress, said on Thursday that the Bush administration had violated federal law by producing and disseminating television news segments that portray the new Medicare law as a boon to the elderly.

The agency said the videos were a form of "covert propaganda" because the government was not identified as the source of the materials, broadcast by at least 40 television stations in 33 markets. The agency also expressed some concern about the content of the videos, but based its ruling on the lack of disclosure.Source (http://www.nytimes.com/2004/05/20/politics/20medicare.html?hp)

Restoring honor and dignity to the White House--one lie at a time.

Didn't this surface a few months ago ,with actors appearing in real life situations,such as the press interviewing folks ,seemingly to appear as testimonials?The whole thing was staged, if this is the same one you're talking about.
