Phony Media Stories By Bush A Big Story? Nah!

The Bush administration has sent phony "news" stories about the new Medicare bill to local stations around the country and 5 stations have broadcasted them as straight news stories. The Times picked up the story yesterday and John Stewart did a bit on it last night but otherwise I have heard and read nothing about it. The journalists and seniors in the stories were all actors but the punditry doesn't seem to think that such propaganda is a problem?
