A fact sheet released Monday by the Obama Administration showcases a $6.7 million proposed cut in newspaper advertising by the Dept. of Justice.
Publishers far and wide trying to get up off the floor are wincing from the Obama Administration’s kick. It’s going to be interesting in 90 days to see if this one is still in the government waste column.
The advertising is tied to public notices around the U.S. Marshals Service Asset Forfeiture Program. Rather than post these notices in newspapers around the country, the plan is to move them to the Internet.
Finally tonight, as promised, a Special Comment on the latest atrocity from the banks. The vast, engorged, gluttonous multi-national corporations. Whose sneezes can be fatal to our jobs. Whose mistakes can turn us into the homeless. Whose accounting errors can be so panoramic that they can make our economy tremble and force us to hand them billions after billions in a blackmail scheme that has come to be known as “bailout.”
