Arlington County's Latest Effort to Waste Your Taxes

Would someone provide the County Board a short lesson in how many news options the private sector provides Arlingtonians? It seems that network news, cable news channels, two national daily papers, one local daily paper, two weekly papers, and one regional business paper isn't enough for the Courthouse Gang. According to this press release from the county's office of spinning, the grand poohbahs believe we need five minutes each hour on one of Arlington's guvmint television channels. If anyone was wondering if the Manager's September 8 letter about budget priorities (see our recent growling) means anything, they got their answer with the announcement that county apparitchiks will be providing these five-minute news segments. Wasn't it Lenin who taught the world that controlled government propaganda was his first priority?
