Ellie Light… Obama’s Armstrong Williams?

leave a comment »

Remember Armstrong Williams?  He was the columnist and radio host allegedly paid by the Bush administration’s Education Department to write columns in support of No Child Left Behind legislation.  Other columnists were also found to be getting paid to support Bush admin policies.

Is Ellie Light Barack Obama’s Armstrong Williams?  Light has gotten letters to the editor published in papers across the country recently that slavishly spout Obama propaganda.  Is she getting paid to do this by the Obama administration?  At the very least, this episode shows the laziness of reporters and editors across America who are so willing to print pro-Obama talking points they don’t even care to verify who’s writing them.
