Armstrong Williams Follow-Up

I admitted below that I had not followed the Armstrong Williams situation closely, not being a big fan of his. Glenn Reynolds has prepared a highly substantive analysis (law professors are prone to do that) here. It will probably tell you a lot about "government distribution of prepared news segments without on-air disclosures of their origin," described as "a bipartisan practice that predated the Bush administration." I personally had no idea such things went on, so color me naive.

Meanwhile, Williams' printed apology appeared today on As a non-Williams fan I found it persuasive. I still won't listen to him, but I didn't listen to him before either.
