Buying Access

July 7, 2009

The scandal at the Washington Post simply sheds light on what has been de rigueur in Washington for a long time:  paying large sums of money for the opportunity to influence politicians.  But the Post compounded the legalized bribery so common in Washington with allowing cash to buy access to journalists as well!
Nice touch for a dying industry!
How much do you think the devil will pay to buy journalism’s soul?

    There used to be a law that made it illegal for corporations to bribe (I mean lobby or donate) to Congress.
    Was it such a bad law?
