Bush Breaks the Law again, and again, and again

From the NY Times

"Federal auditors said on Friday that the Bush administration violated the law by buying favorable news coverage of President Bush's education policies, by making payments to the conservative commentator Armstrong Williams and by hiring a public relations company to analyze media perceptions of the Republican Party.

In a blistering report, the investigators, from the Government Accountability Office, said the administration had disseminated "covert propaganda" in the United States, in violation of a statutory ban."

Here's what i don't understand about this issue. Many of these fake news stories were shown during an election year. If the laws that were broken have no penalty, why not go after them on the grounds that these 'news' pieces were against all possible campaign laws.

The laziness of the news media continues to astound me. The media outlets that are not openly right wing are refusing to report the news because it costs too much to investigate real stories. And hey. why bother when you can always hope for a white girl to get kidnapped and spend 24 hours a day talking about it.
