McManus and Gallagher's graft connection

Another nugget from Media Matters, who are regularly accused of being funded by the likes of George Soros. Untrue, they say. But they've managed to discover that payoffs to reactionary shills run deeper than just the White House. The most recent pundits exposed as recipients of taxpayer money to plug the admin's policies are apparently receiving money from plenty of other right-wing organizations.

By the way-- why aren't we hearing more people (or anyone, for that matter) use the word graft in conjunction with McManus, Gallagher and Williams? And how much corruption will have to be unearthed before the press starts doing their job. Before the public gets fired up?
