Tom DeLay

| | Comments (0)
I don't really care about Tom DeLay. But the recent NY Times piece about his family members getting paid by his campaign and PACs really boiled my blood.

The story was completely irrelevant and had no business ever being published. The story was trying to show that DeLay did something wrong by paying family members to work for his campaign and PACs. But there is nothing remotely wrong with it, in any way. It is not illegal, unethical, or immoral. It is perfectly acceptable.

It was a hatchet job, intended specifically to make DeLay look bad without actually showing him doing anything wrong. And it's a great example of why so many people don't trust or like the media. The Times could go a long way toward improving its image by disavowing the story and firing the reporter who wrote it.
