Developer Robert Mericle has agreed to plead guilty in the kids-for-cash scandal, the U.S. Attorney's Office announced today.

Washington Post: GUILTY!!!

There goes the "liberal media" again! You know, the one that's owned by corporations that aren't liberal. My daily proof that the mainstream media isn't liberal. Apparently, evidence and proof are meaningless nowadays.

When a scandal involving the Bush administration’s firing of US Attorneys broke in early 2007, initial coverage by the Washington Post supported the idea that the firings had been politically motivated. That approach, however, quickly changed to one that was far more friendly to the White House.

"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together." Dwight David Eisenhower, "Military-Industrial Complex Speech," 1961
