Armstrong williams was (rightly!) excoriated for promoting administration programs without revealing that he had been paid for writing some material for a couple of those programs. The MSM JUMPED at the story, pointing to it as an example of Neo-con perfidy.
Now it's been revealed that Linda Fasulo, an NBC and MSNBC corrospondant was on the payroll of the UN lobby.
Keep in mind that Williams is a pundit. He is paid for giving his opinion. You KNOW from what side of the aisle he approached issues from.
While He WAS remiss in not revealing a fiduciary connection with a program, it's doubtfull that he would have had any different opinion about that program had he not been paid for producing information literature for it.
Ms. Fasulo, on the other hand, is supposed to be a straight news reporter, and therin lies a world of difference. A reporter is supposed to just present the facts of a story, as honestly and thoroughly as possible, with as little bias to any idiology or organization as possible.
It is apparent from her book An Insider's Guide to the U.N., that Ms Fasulo's opinions have been bought. Incidentally, the funding from the book was supplied by Ted Turner's U.N. Foundation and Better World Campaign and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, both of which are Pro-U.N. bodies.
I'm waiting to hear this revelation to be as loudly touted as the Williams revelation by the MSM......I just won't be holding my breath for it to happen.
