Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, thinking that he was talking to conservative media, accidentally told Media Matters about conservative fundraisers backscratching each other.
The arrangement was simply FreedomWorks paid Glenn Beck money and Glenn Beck said nice things about FreedomWorks on the air. I saw that a million dollars went to Beck this past year, that was the annual expenditure.
It's not like this is news; anyone paying attention knows this is how it works. But it's unusual to get it from the horse's mouth.
Since Media Matters is a liberal organization, they're biased, so there's no need to regard this as important.
