No Flack Left Behind: A FOIA request
: I just filed another Freedom of Information Act request, this one with the Department of Education seeking:
Records of any and all advertising and/or public-relations fees to promote No Child Left Behind or any other Department of Education program or agenda. This includes payments made through an agency or directly to any media organization — including but not limited to newspapers, magazines, TV shows, radio shows, webloggers, commentators, or spokesmen. This should include any payments made in the last four years.
I plan to file the same request with other government agencies to see how they are using our tax dollars to promote their programs and agendas — and whom they’re trying to corrupt (or the already corrupted they’re trying to use). If you have any suggestions — particularly any promotions you’ve seen, since the more specific these requests are, the better — then please leave them in the comments.
