Williams Offers Ridiculous "Truthiness" For Conservative 9/11 Revisionists
Armstrong Williams may be off the Bush Administration's payroll, but he apparently still likes shilling for the commander in chief.
On his New York-based morning radio show, conservative pundit Williams tried to revise what President Bush did on Sept. 11, 2001, after then-Chief of Staff Andrew Card whispered into his ear, "The nation is under attack."
"We don't know what he said (to Card)," Williams countered to liberal co-host Sam Greenfield, after Greenfield had chastised a caller defending the Bush's actions that morning.
We don't know what he said? Umm. He didn't say anything.
Americans know this because there's video footage. Bush sat in the Sarasota, Fla., classroom, looking like a nervous student unprepared for a pop quiz. He didn't communicate anything to Card or any other member of his staff, at least until he excused himself from participation in the reading of My Pet Goat.
Who exactly does Williams think he can fool with this sort of "truthiness?"
Williams gained notoriety nearly two years ago when it was learned that, via a subcontract from public relations firm Ketchum Inc., he had been paid to tout for the Department of Education's "No Child Left Behind" program.
The payment was one of several events that the non-partisan Government Accountability Office found to be "covert propaganda," and in violation of "governmentwide" anti-propaganda rules.
I guess old habits die hard.
