Questions have been raised about the use of taxpayer dollars to fund public relations (PR) campaigns. The White House Office of Nat. Drug Control Policy & the Dept. of Health & Human Services (HHS) engaged in illegal “covert propaganda” by hiring a PR firm to produce & disseminate fabricated video news reports. The Dept. of Ed. paid a journalist to promote the No Child Left Behind Act in TV & radio appearances & the HHS had a contract with a syndicated columnist who promoted the Pres. marriage initiative. This report finds that fed. spending for PR has more than doubled under the Bush Admin. While not all PR spending is illegal or inappropriate, this rapid rise in PR contacts at a time of growing budget deficits raises questions about the priorities of the Admin.
