Not So Free Press

Another 'Conservative' Reporter On the Take

The 'liberal' media has Dan Rather and Jason Blair, the 'conservative' media has Armstrong Williams and now, Maggie Gallagher. Maggie is a conservative columnist most noted for her extensive denouncing of the marriage equity movement (i.e. gay marriage rights). But oops! It turns out that she has a small conflict of interest - She was a paid consultant to the the Deparment of Health and Human Services on this very topic. The list is likely to grow.

The funny thing is that the GOP used to be all over such abusive and waste use of taxpayer dollars for things like buying off so called journalists. Not anymore. Is it any wonder that people are increasingly turning away from big media to get their news and commentary from blogs?

Andrew Sullivan has a good take on this, although I think he may be too kind to Ms. Gallagher.
