Steve Gilliard, 1964-2007
It is with tremendous sadness that we must convey
the news that Steve Gilliard, editor and publisher of The News Blog,
passed away June 2, 2007. He was 42.
To those who have come to trust
The News Blog and its insightful, brash and unapologetic editorial
tone, we have Steve to thank from the bottom of our hearts. Steve helped
lead many discussions that mattered to all of us, and he tackled subjects
and interest categories where others feared to tread.
Please keep Steve's friends and family in your
thoughts and prayers.
Steve meant so much to us.
We will miss him terribly.

Bush administration paid columnist to push its agenda
Last Updated: Monday, January 10, 2005 | 3:22 PM ET
The Bush administration paid Armstrong Williams, a prominent Washington columnist, to promote its education policy, possibly violating U.S. law.
Williams has admitted taking money in return for spotlighting the so-called No Child Left Behind education initiative.
A number of federal laws prohibit taxpayer money being used to influence public opinion.
The story broke in USA Today's weekend edition, which followed a Freedom of Information request.
Williams received $240,000 U.S. for his help through a public-relations firm hired by the Education Department.
The White House has referred questions on the matter to the Education Department, whose spokesman said the Williams contract followed standard guidelines.
Williams now says he regrets taking the contract.
"It's important that I have a credible voice and that I'm not perceived as being paid for what I say," he said in an interview with USA Today that was published Monday.
"This is my responsibility. I blame no one. I get the message, and I will be better."
This bald, corrupt, possibly closeted gay "pundit" is upset at Sam Seder for reminding him of his moral bankruptcy?
Please. He should be mad at his Republican friends who dumped him like a cheap whore.
